Sevim studied at Islington Green School which has now changed its name to the City of London Academy. After finishing secondary school she explained that she was really confused about what to study next and as her Science grades were really good had decided to go to Westminster Kingsway College to study A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. However, the A-levels were only based on exams which she realised were not for her. So after hearing very positive feedback about BSix from close friends she decided to visit to find out what Uniformed Public Services was all about and finding a real interest in this subject area she decided to enrol at BSix College onto a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Public Services in September 2010.
Sevim spoke about her course at BSix saying,
"This course really related to aspects of what I went on to study at Middlesex University, which was a BA degree in Criminology. This included modules such as 'the Criminal Justice System which I was taught the basics of whilst in BSix. The Public Services course at BSix was definitely the right choice for me as it was based only on coursework and involved a lot of practical work. We went to a military site to go through the recruitment process and had a trip to Lancashire, Rock and River where we completed many activities like rock climbing and camping. This is one of the most unforgettable experiences I have ever had. On another trip, we went to the Police Station in Hackney to act as a custody officer which was also very interesting and really helped me to decide on my future career. My goal is to become a Police officer and the visit to the Police Station led me to gain a volunteer job as a front counter officer in the Station. This really benefited me as I saw different job roles which I had previously been unaware of. BSix College helped me to develop and put things in place to better prepare me for my future career. I can say I really gained valuable experience and really enjoyed
Sevim has now successfully completed her 3 year degree in Criminology and said that she found it fascinating to study various concepts and to learn to analyse and critically appraise criminological theories and to look at why people commit crime.
