Criminology – Level 3 Diploma (A-Level equivalent)

Our Criminology Programme provides the perfect basis for students interested in a career in the criminal justice system, social and probation work, sociology or psychology. Please note that the Level 3 Criminology Diploma is to be studied alongside A-Level Law and a third subject (we recommend English Language).

What will I study?

This is a new and exciting A-level equivalent qualification that includes:

  • Changing Awareness of Crime.
  • Criminological Theories
  • Crime Scene to Courtroom
  • Crime and Punishment

This unique study programme offers students a more accessible alternative to an exclusively A-level based programme and is therefore the perfect way to maximize enjoyment, motivation and most importantly success. You will be prepared to enter higher education studying a range of excellent courses, such as Forensic Psychology. Additionally, you will develop the skills required to be successful in both coursework assignments and examinations. Ultimately you will have the chance to gain a detailed and applied understanding of all aspects of Criminology and therefore have access to the many exciting opportunities this will provide.

Entry Requirements

To study Criminology Level 3 Diploma, you will need 5 GCSEs grade 4 or above, including English and Maths.
