If you are looking to pursue a career in the legal or wider commercial sector, have an interest in criminal justice, crime and criminal behaviour, but require greater flexibility in study patterns and wish to study 100% online, then this is the degree for you. A Qualifying Law Degree, the course has a practical focus, with employability integrated into the course.

There is a high level of interaction and you will receive peer and one-to-one professional tutor review, with over 90% of our tutors being qualified solicitors and barristers.

The course will deliver an insight into critical legal and criminology topics and develop knowledge and understanding of key concepts in a practical environment. You will develop analysis, research, problem-solving and communication skills.

There are three study options available: 3, 4 or 6 year programmes, allowing you to study full-time or part-time to suit your commitments and career plans.

Not only will you study the key legal topics and related skills required for the modern law student, but the study of Criminology will help make you employment ready and open up a wider array of career options.

Our online degree will complete the academic stage of training for those wishing to qualify as a solicitor or barrister and provides the foundation for Masters degrees, or you can move into employment within the wider legal sector and other commercial/business fields.
