Is anyone looking for EPQ help?Watch
I'm currently in year 13 and just got the result of an A* in my EPQ. Feel free to ask any questions if you're looking for help!
Hey! yes I am just starting my EPQ I am interested in topics to do with crime/psychology, as I am looking to do criminology and criminal justice at uni. I am struggling to come up with questions/starting points - any help would be much appreciated!
I hope you are keeping safe and well. Thought I'd just drop a reference to our upcoming Law and Criminology Showcase on 21 and 22 April here, as it may help with broadening your understanding of criminology and also spark some ideas for your EPQ.

A taster of live sessions include:
• Cybercrime and Its Hidden Victims
This session will draw on notions of victimisation, particularly victims of a cyber-related crime. In the context of lockdown (Covid 19), society has become more reliant on different online platforms. With this increase in the use of technology, so has victimisation increased. However, research has shown that such victimisation is not always reported; thus, the victims remain hidden. In this session, we will consider some of the reasons why these types of crime remain underreported.
• When is ‘ethical hacking’ legal and ethical?
In this interactive session, you will be introduced to some key legal and ethical debates around the topic of ethical hacking. You'll find out a bit about this fascinating area of criminal law and how different shades of hackers - known as Black, White and Black 'Hats', may or not cross legal and ethical lines.
• How do we explain Criminal Behaviour? Biological, Psychological and Sociological theories
Delivered by current PhD students Joe Janes and Jordan Dawson, this session will provide a taster of studying criminology at Swansea.
In this session we will outline some of the key theories we discuss in Criminology, taking an analytical view of Biological, Psychological and Sociological theories. We will ask students to apply these theories to real world examples of crime.
You will also gain access to a host of pre-recorded materials
