Ellis Martin

BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology

“I decided to study psychology and criminology combined here at the University Centre as it is not offered at many establishments. It is also in partnership with the University of Salford, so I have access to both the college and university’s facilities. I studied at the centre for the first year of my degree and transitioned to the University of Salford for my second and third year. When I fi nish, I plan to study a master’s degree in forensic psychology.”
