Hi, I'm Charlotte Gould and I studied BSc Applied Social Sciences (Criminology with Psychological Studies) within Social Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I’ve met a lot of new people from all different backgrounds and cultures that I never thought I would have the opportunity to meet, which has been really great.

Why did you choose to undertake your studies at the University of Southampton?

It’s high up in the league tables, part of the Russell Group so it has top quality research and when I looked around the campus I really liked the atmosphere. It’s also close to the city and everyone is really friendly.

What have you most enjoyed about your time here?

I’ve met a lot of new people from all different backgrounds and cultures that I never thought I would have the opportunity to meet, which has been really great. My lecturers have been really helpful which has been a good part of my experience too.

Were there any particular modules which stood out for you?

I really enjoyed the Violent and Sexual Offenders module and Penology; these modules have given me a real insight into what I want to do next and prompted me towards studying my master's degree. Within the Psychology side I did a module called Psychological disorders which was enjoyable as well.

What are your plans for the future?

I am undertaking a Psychology master's which is also a conversion course that allows me to go on to become a practicing psychologist. I will also be doing a placement at Grendon prison working in the psychology department.

What skills do you think you have gained to be able to use in these future roles?

Besides learning about crime and psychology I also learned adaptable skills including time management, organisation, being able to work in a team and also being able to motivate myself to work on my own.

Why would you encourage other people to come to Southampton?

I think it is a really good university with high standards and world-led research and you come out with a really good degree at the end of your time here.
