Criminology Facilities

Step out of the classroom and into the crime scene.

Put what you learn into practice in our purpose-built replica crime scene facility right here on campus.

Get to grips - literally - with topics from modern-day slavery to knife crime, and from domestic violence to cyber crime.

Our newly developed crime scene facility provides detailed and realistic crime scenes for you to explore. Collect evidence, explore criminal activity and see the world of forensic science brought to life.

Learn in the line of duty

When you choose one of our Criminology degrees, you’ll get the chance to apply for a semester-long placement with Humberside Police. You’ll work with areas like CSI, the Special Branch Ports Unit, community policing, cyber crime and the custody suite. And you’ll visit crime scenes, observe interviews and collect evidence.
