About the Institute of Criminology

The Institute of Criminology, at the University of Cambridge, has a worldwide reputation for excellence in both research and teaching. Founded by Sir Leon Radzinowicz in 1959, we were one of the first criminological institutes in Europe and have exerted a strong influence on the development of the discipline. Many of our academic staff are international leaders in their fields. Staff hail from multidisciplinary international backgrounds and their interests cover a broad range of topics, as you will see from their profile pages on this site. In recognition of their outstanding research, Cambridge criminologists have been awarded numerous prestigious international awards.

The Institute is also home to the Radzinowicz Library, which houses the most comprehensive criminology collection in the United Kingdom.

The Institute of Criminology, as with the University of Cambridge as a whole, is committed in its pursuit of academic excellence to equality of opportunity and to a proactive and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.

Prisoners to get bursaries to study at Cambridge

Sep 13, 2018

The University of Cambridge is to launch its first bursaries for prisoners to study at the institution, under an initiative that could ultimately lead to degrees being delivered behind bars. The four £5,000 bursaries, provided by Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education in partnership with the Longford Trust charity, will support serving or former prisoners to join other students on courses that involve spending 14 days at the institute.
