Course summary

Find out more about the TEF.

Newman University has developed an innovative foundation year for their social science degrees. The pre-degree year of this four year course, if passed, leads into the same study programme as the 3 year joint honours degree course in Criminology.

This foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.

Criminology is an exciting new addition to Newman’s course portfolio and is underpinned by the strong staff expertise in teaching, research and professional practice in the applied Human Sciences, including psychology and counselling, working with children, young people and families, and youth and community work.
Reflecting the aims and work of Newman’s dedicated Children and Families Research Centre, including its involvement in recent European Union funded projects on service user perspectives on violence, exploitation and trafficking, and street violence among young people in Europe, the Criminology course is informed by cutting-edge research and practice. It also includes regular guest contributions from criminal justice professionals and other external expert speakers who provide detailed insights into the practical aspects of responding to crime and its victims, as well as highlighting potential graduate employment opportunities in related fields.
