Our short online Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) in Law with Criminology course gives a specialised combined understanding of the two disciplines. Students will obtain a broad theoretical understanding of the rapidly changing environment, practice and operations in criminology, while gaining a solid grounding in the fundamentals of the English Legal System and other key legal topics.

Law and criminology are both widely recognised and highly respected subjects and the knowledge gained on our CertHE Law with Criminology will open up many opportunities for you to develop your career both inside and outside the legal and criminal justice fields.

Alongside subject-specific knowledge, this course helps you develop skills in a number of areas including research, presentation and critical thinking.

Our CertHE Law with Criminology can be achieved as a stand-alone qualification or used as a stepping stone towards a full LLB (Hons) Law with Criminology.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
