            2011-2013, MSc

            I completed the MSc Policing Policy and Leadership in 2013. This is a distance learning course, for the first half I was living and working in Africa, I was back in the UK for the second half. You would not have noticed the difference. The access to university online resources is excellent, advice was just an email away, I always felt part of the family wherever I was. The academic staff at the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies are very experienced, both in their field and as mentors. they really get the best out of the students. Overall I throroughly enjoyed my study at Portsmouth University and would recommend anybody looking to study a course relevant to law enforcement to seriously look at the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Portsmouth.

          • Testimony
            2010-2014, Bachelor's Degree

            I did BA (Hons) Business Studies at Portsmouth uni with a year in industry and throughly enjoyed my time there. Great tutors, warm educational environment and of course an amazing location to live in itself. Having a year in industry was one of the best parts of my degree and really helped during my final year. As a result, I got an offer for a graduate role before graduating and 6 months after received an offer for permanent role as product development manager within L'Oreal group. To summarise, I highly recommend to do a business degree in Portsmouth!
