The Scottish Centre for Crime & Justice Research (SCCJR) is an academic research centre forged from a unique partnership between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow Caledonian Universities. The University of Glasgow hub of SCCJR is a friendly, informal place in which to study for a postgraduate degree. Staff are knowledgeable, approachable and enthusiastic and there is a thriving and welcoming research culture.

Our regular seminar series draws visiting speakers from around the world to give talks on their research and to meet students; and our postgraduates organise events through the year, including mini conferences, away days and social events.

SCCJR has strong links with criminal justice, government and third sector agencies in Scotland and beyond. Our postgraduate students can benefit from these knowledge exchange networks. Possibilities include dissertation projects conducted in collaboration with such partners, and our developing internship programme for students who want to gain practical experience in a professional criminal justice setting. There are diverse employability prospects following the programmes.
