Law with Criminology - Uni course

Recommended Posts

Ok so I am going to uni in September 2013, I want to go for a good law university but around 35-38 points..not top top unis..

But I mainly want to study criminal law and look into criminiology but hardly any good UK unis can offer this course? Only starting from unis around 40th in the Independent stats of the best unis..

Would I have to do a conversion course from one to the other? or how else could I go about doing these courses?

I also am hoping to move out to South Africa and get a job in law out there, even though I have studied it in the UK, can I still do this? Is the law much different there?

Thank you! xx

As far as I can recall, Lancaster University offers Law with Criminology and it's not that bad a university. :) And it looks really pleasant. :)

Yeah Lancaster does offer that course and they only ask for around 36 points with 16 in your higher level subjects. I got an offer from there to study International Law as well so you could always do that if you are interested in practising abroad. Some universities also give you the option to choose between some modules so perhaps you could just focus your module options on criminology if the universities you like don't offer it specifically.

I am pretty sure that you cannot practice law in south africa with a british law degree, you really need to look into that! I think you would need to study there

It depends on particular rules, but if you're serious about this, a UK law degree won't hinder you. Either you'll have to give the South African bar exam or do a conversion course, on the whole, it won't be too complicated. I'm sure that there are many law firms with branches in South Africa, if you get a job with one of them, you should be able to go back and forth with ease.
