Helen Foster

Helen Foster graduated from her second year Foundation Degree (FdA) in Criminology and Sociology. She aims to do her Top-up degree at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and wants to study Law afterwards to increase her knowledge in the sector.

“The tutors are amazing, they’re really knowledgeable and they can’t help us enough. Because I am older than a lot of the students, it was a bit daunting at first coming into the classroom with lots of younger people but I was made welcome and everyone gets on with each other regardless of the age.”

“We look at the history of crime and see lots of different theories. The resources are great as we get to use both Wigan & Leigh resources and UCLan’s so we have the best of both worlds. The class sizes aren’t too big which means you get more support.”
