Criminology is a topical, interdisciplinary subject that draws from sociology, psychology and law to examine the issues surrounding crime and the criminal justice system. Looking at how crime is defined, why people offend and the consequences of crime, criminology examines the role of the various agencies and institutions that make up the criminal justice system (e.g. police force).

Medical Sciences

A key feature of this course is the application of scientific knowledge to clinical scenarios using clinical simulation. You will also gain experience from intensive work placements in local NHS facilities - these provide first-hand experince of medicine and healthcare in a range of departments and disciplines.


Our psychology degrees are accredited by the British Psychological Society. Our psychology labs will develop your practical skills, and you'll have access to tools including eye-tracking equipment and EEG machines.
