WHY I APPLIED TO THE SECURITY SCIENCE DTC
Having completed both undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in GIS and spatial analysis my interest in pursuing an academic career developed as a result of my previous MRes project looking at national deprivation within the UK. Realising that I wished to pursue further study, I identified the SCDTC as an excellent location to further hone my own skills, and to gain significant applied skill within the field of security.
