Whilst studying Social Policy, Crime and Criminal Justice as an undergraduate at the University of York, I have developed a firm understanding of the key themes and issues surrounding crime and criminal justice.

I have been fortunate enough to be able to contextualise said issues through my role as a Special Sergeant in the Police. My undergraduate studies in conjunction with my role within the police have laid a solid foundation for me to embark on this Masters.

The Institute of Criminology will provide the ideal environment to allow me to cultivate a more critical, deeper understanding of crime and criminological theories and debates which I can convey going into a wide range of law enforcement/government organisations, and Insha’Allah inspire more Muslims to take a similar path.
