Criminology and Law
This course builds on criminological and legal skills and knowledge so as to provide specialist training in criminological, criminal justice and legal research.
We accept applications from graduates of Criminology and Criminal Justice, of LLB (Single and Joint Honours) and related subjects such as Politics, and the Social Sciences. Normally, we require a 2(ii) undergraduate degree. An upper second class (or equivalent) is desirable, but applications from candidates with a lower second class degree and professional qualifications and/or appropriate experience will also be considered.
In general, all applicants are judged on their individual merits. Work experience and other factors are also taken into consideration. We have many years’ experience of making offers of entry based on qualifications awarded worldwide and we welcome applications from international students. Entry will require a qualification deemed to be equivalent in level to the UK bachelor degree.
International applicants are normally required to provide evidence of English language proficiency. The minimum English language requirements will normally be:
- IELTS 6.5 with at least 6.0 in each individual component score
- Pearson PTE: a score of 62 (with no element lower than 58)
- Cambridge English Test – Advanced: 176 (with no element lower than 169)
For information and further detailed guidance on entry requirements for International Students, including the minimum English Language entry requirement, please visit the Entry Requirements by Country pages on the International Education Centre section of our website.
