Americans get to grips with British justice
AMERICAN students are heading to Gloucestershire for a taste of British justice.
The 18 students are all studying criminal justice at the University of Central Florida and arrive on February 28 to learn more about crime and policing with students studying Criminology at the University of Gloucestershire.
The scheme is organised by Dr Carol Jones, senior lecturer in Criminology, who initiated the exchange programme in 2011. The exchange will start with a reception at the University's Francis Close Hall campus in Cheltenham on February 28. The students depart for Chester on March 6.
Dr Jones said: "The world is a small place and we have to acknowledge there are other cultures that on the surface appear to be like ours but actually they are very different, and this is the best way to explore that.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.

"In 2012 I took students on a field trip to Orlando, Florida where they were guests of the University of Central Florida and the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Our students went behind the scenes with security at Disney, went on duty with deputies, and saw a completely different side to Orlando compared to what most visitors see. We hope to offer the American students a chance to see a different side to British life."
