Visit from Dr. Matt Long from Nottingham Trent University.

On Wednesday 1st October 2014, the Social Science team were pleased to welcome Dr. Matt Long to the Academy to deliver a taster session on Criminology to 45 Psychology and Sociology students. Dr. Long is a Criminology lecturer and admissions tutor for the Criminology course at Nottingham Trent University. The session was informative and engaging; the students had to partake in a variety of problem solving tasks which at one point involved a (mock) phone call from Theresa May!!

“The session was brilliant! There was a large amount of audience participation which made it really fun and meant I took a lot of information in. It gave me a really clear idea about criminology and the different paths it can lead onto.”
