Course summary

Why Crime and Criminal Justice (Level 6)? Our Crime and Criminal Justice (Level 6) course is a distance learning programme taught online, which allows you to build on your previous qualifications or experience. Those who have already completed a Level 5 course in a relevant subject (e.g. HND Public Services or HND Policing) or can demonstrate appropriate experience of training and working in a relevant role (e.g. as a police officer) can therefore 'top up' to a full honours degree on successful completion. You’ll develop your critical thinking and research skills and study modules covering themes such as policing, restorative justice, homicide, sexual violence, prisons and rehabilitation, and forensic crime scene investigation. With the benefit of learning from experienced researchers, guest lectures and our strong links with professional organisations in the criminal justice system, on graduation you'll be well prepared to begin or progress your career. This might be in officer or civilian roles in the police, prisons, or other parts of the criminal justice system - including work with victims and young people, in other security-related industries, or in general public services.
