A First Class Performance by Crime and Security CUROP Students
Congratulations to Crime and Security Research Institute CUROP summer placement students Annabel Reville, Catherine King and Freya Cox.
All three graduated on 18th July 2018 with First Class honours:
Annabel Reville, BSc Criminology
Catherine King, Sociology BScEcon
Freya Cox, BSc Social Science
“To see all three of the Crime and Security Research Institute’s most recent CUROP placement students graduate with First Class Honours degrees is a remarkable achievement. It demonstrates the benefits of being able to apply theories and methods learned in the classroom to real world challenges and problems by working alongside full-time researchers as part of the Cardiff degree programme.”
Prof Martin Innes
Annabel worked on the Institute’s Copcat project in 2016, developing new evidence and insights about what works in crime prevention communications to persuade people to adopt new security behaviours to better protect themselves from crime risks.
Catherine and Freya worked on the Grangetown Community Gateway project in 2017, working with Grangetown residents to better understand community perceptions of safety and help make Grangetown an even better place to live.
Catherine and Freya also completed their second year Undergraduate placement module at the Institute, as part of the Working Knowledge module.
“CSRI was such a huge part of my achievement. Without the team I would never have achieved a first class honours. Being able to apply my degree knowledge to real life research has benefited me academically as well as my employability. I owe a special thanks to Dr Helen Innes, Trudy Lowe and Professor Martin Innes who all took me under their wings and helped me become the graduate I am today.”
Well done to all three. We wish you the very best of luck in all your future ventures!
