On Wed 24th February 2021, 5.30pm-7pm UCL will host an ONLINE open evening for courses run by the Department of Security and Crime Science including the MSc in Countering Organised Crime and Terrorism, the MSc in Crime and Forensic Science, the MSc in Crime Science, and the MSc in Policing. The evening is an excellent opportunity to meet course tutors and ask questions. We will discuss in detail the content and logistics of these courses. The evening will also discuss the 14 scholarships on offer and how best to apply for them. To find out more please go to our website or register here: http://bit.ly/UCL-EventBright

Dr Noemie Bouhana, Director of the MSc in Countering Organised Crime and Terrorism, explains what makes the course so distinct: “This course aims to train a new generation of people who are able to draw upon scientific knowledge across a range of disciplines to tackle terrorism and organised crime. Our students learn how to pay equal attention to fundamental questions, such as the causes of terrorism and organised crime, and to applied concerns, such as how do we use this knowledge to prevent these crimes on the ground.”

Recent student Jonathan Camilleri, from Malta, says: “There’s a lot to love about this programme: the excellent and dedicated research and teaching staff, UCL’s iconic location, and the continuous opportunities to develop yourself. I was happy to see my assumptions on crime and terrorism being put to the test and fondly recall the hands-on session of intelligence gathering. This programme opened a number of doors for me on a personal and professional level. In particular ‘Foundations of Security and Crime Science’ gave me several analytical constructs with which to understand crime-data.I now occupy a research-based role in government, while occasionally lecturing in this field.”

In the last Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014) our department was rated world-leading in terms of impact, placing us 1st out of 62 institutions in the unit of assessment. The department is based at University College London, consistently ranked in the top 10 best universities in the world by the QS World University Rankings.
