Student Placement Project

Module code: CR3037

This module provides the opportunity (subject to availability) to undertake a work-based placement within a criminology or criminal justice related environment, and to complete a research project in this environment. The research you undertake will be specific to the placement that you complete. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about the ‘real-world’ experience of working in criminology/ criminal justice, and you’ll be able to undertake research on a relevant topic in this area.
