Studying Science at university

 

New UC Science Videos

What is studying science at Uni really like? We have two new videos that might be of interest to students pondering this question—where lecturers at UC describe the skills gained from studying science; and feedback from current undergraduate students on what it’s like studying science at UC.

We’d really appreciate if you could share these opportunities with your students and their families.  You can also keep up-to-date with our science activities and events on our Facebookpage and UC Science web site.

If you’d like further information please get in touch with us at collegeofscience@canterbury.ac.nz.

What is the difference between Law and Criminal Justice?

What is the difference between Law and Criminal Justice?

Law and Criminal Justice are two very different subjects. Students
must complete a Bachelor of Laws if they want to practice law,
however, people who study law work not only as lawyers, but also as
judges’ clerks, government policy analysts, and in leadership positions
in the business community. The Bachelor of Criminal Justice combines
multidisciplinary academic study with a strong vocational focus,
and looks at the whole criminal justice system and its processes,
including governance, enforcement, rehabilitation and improvement.
It is relevant to careers in areas such as law enforcement, corrections,
offender rehabilitation, working with young offenders, criminal
law, security and border control. More information about these
qualifications and career opportunities can be found here: Law and
Criminal Justice.
