Student Profile(s)

Nisha Pushpararajah

I chose to study a postgraduate course in Forensic Psychology at Birmingham City University after learning that many of the lecturers had been officially recognised for their research in the area. This showed me how dedicated they were to their subjects and helping others to learn about it. The tutors were instantly welcoming and did their utmost to suit every student’s needs.

I hope to eventually progress to become a Forensic Psychologist after developing my skills in this area. I believe I managed to get to this role partly due to the experience I gained while studying at the University
