Claire Morrison is the proud recipient of a first class BSc (Hons) Criminological Psychology degree and a British Psychological Society undergraduate award after graduating from Buckinghamshire New University. Claire has already secured a job as an interventions facilitator at a local prison.
After attending The Grange School in Aylesbury, Claire worked for a decade before returning to Aylesbury College to gain the qualifications she needed to study at Bucks New University.
Commenting on her graduation and award, Claire said:
“There are many highlights from my time at Bucks New University: my lecturer Dr Ciaran O’Keefe ensured that my degree course was always interesting and engaging.
“Studying at Bucks New University has also given me the qualification I need to pursue my chosen career in the prison service, along with the confidence that I have the necessary knowledge and skills to make a real difference.
“I was fortunate to gain experience as a research assistant at the university after my degree ended which will provide valuable experience for my career and future studies.
“I was completely shocked to receive my academic award – it’s an incredible personal achievement and proof that hard work really does pay off.
Sue West, Dean of the Faculty of Society & Health at Bucks New University, said:
“Congratulations to Claire on her achievement. I am delighted that Claire has received this award which recognises her hard work and commitment during her studies at Bucks New University. I wish Claire all the very best for the future.”
Claire will begin a postgraduate course in Forensic Psychology later this year.
