A team of academics led by Adrian beck, head of the University of Leicester’s Department of Criminology, have designed a course to meet the needs of international development workers who are deployed in countries dealing with post-conflict security problems. The course focuses on giving students the skills, understanding and knowledge to help countries in transition.
Because of the difficulties these students might face in connecting to the Internet in these post-conflict countries, the course was designed to be downloaded onto an iPad and accessible via an app.
If the app and the course prove successful, the department has plans to make other degree courses and learning materials available via similar a similar system.
This is just another example of how the University of Leicester academic staff are constantly providing the highest standards of teaching and learning .
If you are an international student and you are interested in studying Criminology or International Relations at Leicester, you can enrol on the Society and Culture International Foundation Year and access the degrees on successful completion of this programme.
