Course info



The department of security and crime sciences is organised into five centres of excellence: Geographical Analysis; The Designing Out Crime Group; The Crime Policy and Evaluation Group; Terrorism and Organised Crime; Forensic Science; Staff and students work within and across these groups and across UCL and the wider research community, including active international collaborations.


Graduates from our research programmes go on to research careers and to lecturing posts in academic institutions. Others have taken up policy-related positions in the public and private security sectors.


UCL Security & Crime Science was one of a handful of departments nationwide to receive a rating of 100% for research impact in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). We are the leading trainer of crime analysts in the UK, having trained over 1,000 police and security analysts in the past ten years. Our students are often practitioners themselves, some holding senior positions. Our programmes are recognised by employers when considering career progression. The fact that our programmes have been endorsed by key advisory organisations (such as the Metropolitan Police Academy) and the fact that they are oriented towards practical approaches to tackling crime mean that they are recognised by recruiters.
