Course summary

The Foundation Year of the four-year programme aims to provide understanding of the key subjects in business to meet the prerequisites for study on the associated degree programme. The key areas of study will be effective communication and study skills combined with key subjects in business. You will be introduced to basic theories and concepts within the disciplines to provide a basic knowledge in all related subject areas. The programme will introduce you to essential areas of business necessary for progression onto business, accounting or law degrees. You will learn how to apply business concepts to real life organisations and develop communication, IT and study skills. Following completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of your selected degree for the remainder three years of your course (four years if you are choosing to do the professional placement year). Designed to allow you to gain a qualifying law degree, as well as to explore crime and justice from a sociological perspective, LLB Law with Criminology is a course for people who wish to embark on a career in law and lift the lid on some of the most important and contentious issues facing society. An industry-focus is placed at the heart of every programme delivered at Salford Business School. Modules are designed around the current needs of employers and the law profession. We also place great emphasis on the development of your professional skills; you will have the opportunity to shadow working lawyers and judges, practise your learning during a year’s work placement and develop your client care skills by helping people looking for support from our legal advice schemes. In this way, you learn to put your academic knowledge into practice. Extra-curricular activities, like mooting and trips, are organised by our student-led Law Society, complementing your studies and enhancing your experience throughout. Through initiatives like the BASS scheme (in partnership with Salford Citizens Advice), you’ll have the chance to offer support to people with welfare benefits appeals in the region, allowing you to not only practise what you’ve learned, but provide help for vulnerable people in the community. Law with Criminology equips you with the tools you need for a successful career in the legal sector and an advanced knowledge of criminology. The programme is recognised by the Bar Standards Board. This means your studies will satisfy the requirements of the legal professional body for the award of a qualifying law degree with nine generic core law modules and one other specialist law module. All our undergraduate law courses are available with: • Placement Year - on the placement year option, you will not pay fees to the University and will earn a wage for the work that you do. • Study Abroad – study with one of our partner Universities for a semester or a year. • Foundation Year – start with the fundamental areas of business and the key skill you need to study at University level Find out more on https://www.salford.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/law-criminology-foundation-year Our commitment to our students Our goal is to prepare you for a fulfilling life and professional career.

Assessment method

Assessments are not just about exams. We use different assessment techniques in different modules and wherever possible these will reflect the types of work you will do in the ‘real world’ for example, portfolio work, multiple choice questions, court visit reports and problem questions. The weighting between exams and coursework varies between modules and years, however exams do still play an important role.
