'A criminologist' writes one of the most prominent practitioners of the craft ' is one whose professional training, occupational role and reward are concentrated towards a scientific approach, study and analysis of the phenomena of crime and criminal behaviour''. - Wolfgang 1963. Crime may not pay, but studying it does! You may understandably ask why people get paid to study crime and criminal behaviour and why, beyond reasons of remuneration, do people engage in this area of study.
There are a variety of answers to the above questions, built around the following kinds of concerns: both anxiety and fear are common responses to crime; the desire to predict and control crime; the hope of preventing crime through social reactions to it, and the simple desire to learn more about crime and what it can tell us about the society we live in.

Management/Leadership Test for an additional cost of €35.00.
This test is conducted on our behalf by Verax international.
This test has to be taken on line and the results will be
sent directly to each student by email usually within 3/ 4
The test will allow you to assess your own performance
against 16 key management/leader competencies – such as
customer focus, decision making, creativity and team working
– which are valued by employers and which are very important
for effective performance as a manager or team leader. There
is one test for managers in the public sector and a separate
test for all other managers. Depending on which version
chosen, your performance is benchmarked either against
15,000 or so managers in the database or against public
sector managers only.
In summary, this unique test will show you what to stop
doing (or do less of) and what to start doing (or do more
of) in order to become more effective in your current
role/activity. In effect, you are told what you need to do
to become a more effective manager and team leader and most
important of all, how to do it.’
