UCL has 14 scholarships on offer for policing, crime, forensics & counter-terrorism courses

UCLThe Department of Security and Crime Science at UCL has 14 scholarships available for students on its policing, crime, forensics and counter-terrorism courses.

Speaking about the courses at UCL, Head of the Department, Professor Richard Wortley, explains, “We embed knowledge from our world-leading research into our courses. We have years of experience working with police forces and an understanding of the needs of operational policing. For instance, we are one of the leading trainers of police and crime analysts, training officers across the world, as far afield as Uruguay and India.”


Professor Wortley continues, “Our research covers many areas of keen interest to policing. We recently ran the £3m What Works in Crime Reduction project with the UK College of Policing seeking to develop an evidence-based approach for police professionals, and the €3m PRIME project looking at lone actor terrorism. Our courses pay equal attention to fundamental questions such as the causes of crime, and to applied concerns, such as how we can use this knowledge to prevent crimes on the ground. That emphasis on problem-solving explains why the courses are equally popular with both practitioners and police professionals, and students wishing to begin careers in these fields.”

The courses at UCL that qualify for these scholarships include: MSc in Policing, the MSc in Countering Organised Crime and Terrorism, the MSc in Crime and Forensic Science, and the MSc in Crime Science.
