What year did you graduate?
Where are you currently working?
I work as a Social Security Investigator and Policy maker for a Swedish Government Agency
Describe your journey from leaving university to where you are now
After graduation in 2016 I relocated to Scandinavia. I started my career at the Government Migration Agency working as an immigration officer. After that, I continued my career within different departments of government agencies, and I have been permanently employed since 2017 with great benefits.
How do you feel your course has prepared you for your career?
The course was very relevant to today’s society with a broad spectrum that can be applied within many fields. The analytical elements set the foundation for all work and criminologists are very attractive on the job market today.
How did you find the support at the University of Bedfordshire?
The support I received during my studies kept me grounded and focused. My lecturers motivated and supported me and the university’s broad range of lectures, field trips and open days really offered a wide variety of activities to prepare me well for life after university. SiD provided emotional support and the university offered employment, which was great work experience for when I graduated. The 24-hour library created great flexibility to take advantage of every hour for studying and met everyone’s different study styles and times.
Describe the University of Bedfordshire in one word?
What is your favourite memory of your time at the University of Bedfordshire?
In my International Criminal Law unit we participated in a charity event called Remembering Srebrenica where we received the opportunity to travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina to witness first hand the effects of genocide. This is an experience that humbled me and I am grateful to have been a part of something so important; very relevant in my field of work today.
What are your words of wisdom for prospective or current students?
Take advantage of all the support and opportunities the university provides. Balance hard work with play and enjoy every moment. I thoroughly loved my time and am so grateful because it set the pavements of my future.
