The Institute of Criminology (University of Cambridge) runs a two-year part-time Master’s course (MSt) in Applied Criminology, Penology and Management, which is now accepting applications for the Spring 2023 intake. Students generally include practitioners working in public and private prisons, probation services, youth justice, the third sector, the magistracy, and international governmental and non-governmental organisations.

The course is designed to be compatible with full-time careers in criminal justice, and aims to produce highly informed and research-literate future leaders. It is taught through a series of residential study blocks in Cambridge, by internationally renowned researchers and guest speakers, with an emphasis on interactive learning between experienced criminal justice professionals and academics (including a number with close links with CEP). If you are interested in learning more about the programme, which begins in April 2023 (application deadline, 13th January), please contact
