"My experience at UCJC was very positive and, apart from a very all-round education, I made extraordinary companions and friends."
My experience was wonderful both in the psychology and criminology departments. Qualified teachers who are currently immersed in the sector passed on their first-hand knowledge by telling us real cases and letting us participate in them, proposing different treatments and hypotheses. In addition, as the classes were small, the academics were concerned about the follow-up of each of the students and they personalised tutoring each our individual practical work. Specifically, in the Criminology degree we had the opportunity to visit different centres related to the discipline such as the National Police academy in Ávila or the forensic anatomical Institute. In my opinion these visits are very useful to get to know the different job opportunities that Criminology offers. Regarding the practical training at companies, for Psychology I did them in a juvenile centre (although there were several options depending on the speciality that we chose such as hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centres …) and in criminology in the Guardia Civil (Technical Unit of Judicial Police). In both cases the professionals let us participate and I personally got to know first-hand how they work in different fields so I had the opportunity to put into practice all the knowledge acquired throughout the classes.
