Welcome to the Criminology Collective UK
A warm welcome from Jo Lear and Olivia da Silva. We are 3rd year undergraduate students studying Criminology at London South Bank University. Over the past 18 months we have developed a concept which we believe is a successful and exciting social business venture.
The Criminology Collective UK (CCUK) was born from a hugely successful university society which has been labelled as the “most vibrant and active criminology student society within BritSocCrim” by Dr Marisa Silvestri, Executive member of the British Society of Criminology.
From this we realised that our passion for student success and engagement was such that we wanted to extend this beyond the confines of our immediate university student network. We want to create a platform where ideas can be exchanged and debated respectfully, we can all learn from each other.
The CCUK is a mutually beneficial collaborative experience that allows students and professionals to access previously untapped opportunities via an online hub that they would perhaps otherwise struggle to access.
Our assumption is that students who engage with external resources, for example attending lectures at other universities, going to conferences and attending networking events, gain a deeper understanding of their course; they may even improve their grade and have an overall more satisfactory and fulfilling student experience. This will enable them to make invaluable contacts and create opportunities which may have been previously inaccessible.
Not only will this network increase student experience but will also allow professionals to access graduating students who are at the top of their game.
The network will be based of a membership system with access via log in details on our website.
Right now we are looking for students, societies, universities and professions to join us and create this unique experience.
We look forward to meeting you online and hearing about what you’ve been up to in your studies and beyond!
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Jo and Olivia.
