Trips & Visits

Let's hear it for New York

This year, 30 Biology, Criminology and Law students headed off to New York for an action-packed schedule. As well as taking in all the iconic sites, the visit was specifically designed to embrace each students study programme.

For Law and Criminology students it included an exclusive tour of the New York Supreme Court by a senior judge, a bespoke crime tour of Hell's Kitchen, an emotional visit of the newly completed 911 museum and a visit to the United Nations headquarters on east Manhattan.

Whilst Biology students visited the renowned Natural History Museum, experienced the bio-diversity of the High Line urban regeneration, saw conservation in-action at the Central Park Zoo and also visited the vast collection of sea life at the Brooklyn Aquarium.

On top of this there were the tourist experiences that included visiting the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 911 Memorial, Grand Central Station, Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO, “Wicked” on Broadway, Top of the Rock Observation Deck, Roosevelt Island Tramway and Times Square.

From 8am to 10pm, this trip lived every minute. Many of the students are already planning to come back one day. As one student said, "If you get a chance, go".
