The Centre of Criminology has just launched a part-time DPhil in Criminology. The programme is aimed at criminal justice professionals, third sector workers, and anyone else who would like to undertake a DPhil on a part-time basis. We envisage that most students enrolled in the part-time programme will take around six years to complete.

The Howard League for Penal Reform have very kindly offered a scholarship for a part-time DPhil student whose research is relevant to their work. This will fund the student’s fees for six years of study.

Applications are now open for admission in the academic year 2015/16, with a deadline of 1 June 2015. Details of the programme can be found on the Centre website and the University of Oxford Graduate Admissions website.
