This foundation degree will provide you with the strong understanding of the law, focusing on either law within the business environment or in relation to criminology and criminal justice, depending on the pathway you choose.

The course will familiarise you with the English legal system and substantive areas of law. You could also study aspects of business and management organisations, or the theory behind criminal behaviour and the justice system.

This foundation degree has been designed with input from local employers, which ensures that it develops the skills required in industry today, and therefore enhances your employability by enabling you to immediately transition into working life. Modules within the curriculum are intended to provide you with the skills you will need, and allow you to relate theory to practice in order to prepare for the challenges you may face in your future career.

The course includes two potential specialist pathways, which are: Business or Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies.
