LLB Criminal Law, Scotland, UK, Outward Bound

A severe and mature young woman for my age, I became deeply interested in how crime and disorder influence the society we live in throughout my class, Advanced Higher Modern Studies,  in my final year at secondary school. In particular, I am very much engaged in studying how the upbringing of young people so greatly influences their future prospects.

During my last two years at secondary school, I was selected to participate in the Mark Scott Leadership for Life award. The Mark Scott Foundation was set up after the death of Mark in 1997 in a sectarian attack. The week-long course is based at Outward Bound Scotland's center at Loch Eil and is followed by a three, one-day-long community events organized and funded by the participants, including myself. The award entailed working with people from other schools who I had never met before for the best part of a year; I felt it was important to try and create a relaxed working environment and establish good communication. By giving up some of my spare time to embark on this extra-curriculum program, I feel this shows I am an individual who seizes any new opportunities given to me. Since completing this award, I applied for and was successful in becoming the Outward Bound's new gap student. One of my duties as a gap student is to compose, edit and publish their bi-monthly newsletter, which has the added personal benefit of enhancing my IT and language skills.

As an assistant outdoor instructor for Outward Bound Metro and being a responsible and mature individual, I took it upon myself to gain what I felt to be vital life experience working with young people in more deprived areas of Glasgow, before hopefully beginning a course in Criminology at university. It was while working with these young people that I began to appreciate how several different factors, including alcohol, drugs, poverty, and the lack of proper education, could damage their chances of being successful in life.

I have a great passion for outdoor activities and enjoy an exciting and healthy lifestyle. This has been enhanced during my time with Outward Bound, and I feel that I have been extremely fortunate that I have been allowed to assist in such a personally challenging and rewarding gap year.  Through the experiences described, I have broadened my perspectives. I have become more aware that there is undiscovered potential within young adults, such as those who were not able or did not have the support to be able to remove themselves from their unfortunate backgrounds. 

My gap year experience has only reinforced my wish to study Criminology as a means to develop a far greater understanding of these underlying issues and their social implications, with the ultimate aim of being able to work with offenders and maximize their potential. As for where I wish this degree to take me as a career, I have not yet chosen. Keeping my options open for the time being will allow me to explore the different niches that this degree would open up to me. However, I firmly believe that the personal qualities I possess and my enthusiasm and interest in law will lead me into a career where I can thrive on new challenges and use my knowledge of the criminal justice system to empower individuals. I thank you for considering my application to your distinguished program.
