Overseas immersion programme

Students are required to undertake a four week summer school in the UK, based at the University of Liverpool campus. This takes place in the summer between the second and third years of studies. Students engage in a range of activities during this unique opportunity, including a programme of lectures and seminars on criminological topics, visits to key criminal justice institutions and other notable locations, engagement sessions with local criminal justice system practioners and NGOs, and opportunities to utilise the research and library resources at the home campus. Students benefit from our first-class facilities on campus, including our excellent library, and our revitalising sports centre which has recently undergone a £5 million renovation.

Although the overseas immersion programme is primarily a study trip, social activities and tours are also arranged, and students are given space in the programme to plan their own excursions too. Being located within the University of Liverpool this programme will be set against the backdrop of one of the most creative, energetic cities in the UK. With history, dynamism, diversity, modernity and creativity influencing every part of the city, there is something to suit everyone’s tastes. Built on an illustrious heritage that stretches back 800 years, Liverpool has a global reputation for sport, music, architecture and a wealth of culture for students to explore.
