If you don’t attain the grades needed to enrol on to the LLB Law with Criminology undergraduate programme, then this 4-year programme, including a Foundation Year, could be for you.
The Foundation Year is an excellent way to gain the knowledge and skills needed to begin the LLB Law with Criminology degree; you will be introduced to key themes in law, as well as being provided with opportunities to pick up new skills that will be of use throughout your undergraduate degree.
The Foundation Year is taught at The College, located on our Bay Campus. After you complete this year, you will move to Singleton Campus for the remainder of your studies.
During the following three years of your undergraduate law degree, you will develop research and analytical skills, learning to present your ideas effectively both verbally and in writing, while gaining a comprehensive grounding in the foundations of both law and criminology.
As your studies progress, you can choose from a wide range of specialised Law modules relating to areas such as: Medicine, Human Rights, Family, the Environment, Trade, Employment, and the Media. Alongside this, you will study key concepts in the field of criminology; the most important theories of crime and deviance, and their relevance to contemporary criminal justice policy, research and practice.
All of our undergraduate Law programmes contain the foundations of legal knowledge needed to enter the legal profession. Our programmes provide a strong foundation for students who may wish to take the Solicitors Qualifying Examinations (SQE) in the future, and satisfy the academic stage of training required by the Bar Standards Board for those wishing to become barristers.
