Overview

 Research of Criminology at University of Portsmouth

If you want to take your existing knowledge in Criminology into postgraduate research, Portsmouth is the perfect place to do it. The nature of crime and the ways in which we prevent, detect, investigate and prosecute it are evolving. When you study for a postgraduate research degree with us, you'll play your part in delivering vital research that tackles major issues of crime and punishment.

Our School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) is a leading centre for research in criminology, criminal justice and related fields. And we've received research funding from major organisations, such as the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST).

As a postgraduate researcher, you can take advantage of excellent research facilities and our links with the South East Regional Crime Unit, the National Crime Agency, the National Cybersecurity Centre, the Home Office, Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary, and City of London Police.
