Discover Criminology – Wednesday, 25 November 2015

The Discover Criminology day is a great opportunity to find out what it would be like to be a criminology undergraduate student at The University of Manchester.

The day is open to all interested students – no previous experience of criminology is needed.

You’ll have the chance to get a taste of a lecture and some workshops on the sorts of topics that you could study at Manchester, as well as meeting current staff and students.

The Discover Criminology day will enable you to explore and experience the study of criminology at The University of Manchester. The day will consist of an overview of the range of courses available, a careers presentation on opportunities following graduation in criminology, a lecture, a tour of the facilities and a choice of workshops from across a range of topics in criminology. 

The lecture and workshops will cover topics such as definitions of crime, the development of the criminal justice system, and the treatment of victims and prisoners within the system. In addition, participants will have plenty of time to discuss with staff and current students any questions they have about the course or life after graduation.

This day will give students a real taste of what it is like to study Criminology at this University.
