Gurkirit- Royal Holloway, University of London

Hi, I am an undergraduate student studying Criminology and Psychology at Royal Holloway. I have a range of experience working for local authorities.

My professional experience and studies have allowed me to become a highly motivated and well-organised individual who can adhere strictly to deadlines.

My research skills have also been beneficial within my area of discipline. I look forward to spending my free time at the university building professional relationships and providing quality work to showcase my abilities and enhance my professional portfolio.
