PhD Studentships

As part of the Catalyst grant (2016-2020), the partnership has supported seven collaborative PhD studentships. The projects were designed in collaboration with the policing partners and entailed substantive knowledge exchange.

Master’s reports

In 2018 and 2019, N8 PRP funded student bursaries for Master’s dissertation research projects. Students on the Criminal Justice MSc programme at the University of Leeds researched questioned were based on policing priorities identified by project partners, West Yorkshire Police and Safer Leeds.
