This is an online event for UCL's Security Science Doctoral Research Training Centre (SECReT) where you can find out more about our PhDs. 

UCL SECReT was founded in 2009 with £17m of funding and support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (UK) and an array of public and private sector organisations working in crime reduction, security, and law enforcement. Since then UCL SECReT has become one of the premier centres for doctoral research training in these fields. Numerous students from around the world have passed through the programme, going on to work in prestigious careers in crime reduction, security and academia with organisations such as the UK Home Office, DSTL (the UK Defence Science and Technology Lab), Rapiscan, Darktrace, the UK National Crime Agency and a range of top universities.

At the open evening you will hear from the programme leads and current students. We will explain the aim and content of the programme and also discuss the scholarships we currently have available. For further information on these scholarships click here.
