Five GCSEs at grade 4/C or above, including grade 5/C or above in English Language and 4/C in Maths, English Literature and one Science. You do not need any previous knowledge of Criminology, but you should have a keen interest in understanding and examining crime and the criminal justice system.
This course is an introduction to a range of degree courses and careers. It is ideal for students wishing to study criminology, law, politics, social policy, psychology, forensics or sociology at university. Criminology is particularly valued in specific professions such as the police, HM Prison service, forensics, the National Offender Management Service and the National Probation Service, as well as careers in the legal industry, social work and youth work.
This course does not contain a specific work experience component but many of the skills you will learn are essential to employability. If needed, our Employability Team can help you find local work placements that will support the course - for example, with the court service or a barrister.
Enrichment opportunities may include a criminology student conference, a criminal investigation student workshop and/or a visit to a decommissioned prison.
We encourage you to by your own textbook. In addition, there will be a small cost for conferences and visits.
