Testimonial

During my time at the University Centre South Devon I definitely gained the research bug, which has contributed to my success today. I went on to receive a first-class honours in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies at Plymouth University, and had my dissertation on domestic trafficking published in the Law and Criminal Justice Review. I have my tutors and the UCSD to thank for spurring me on to the success I’m now enjoying.
