I am really unsure as to whether I should apply for Criminology or Law. I don't have a clue where Criminology takes you and I think I would like to work in Social Family Law, so this brings sociology into the mix too? Typical offers for Socio/Criminology are AAB-ABB, and then Law is, of course, AAA.

I'm just confused where Criminology will take me, however if it gets me down the right route I am willing to do an MA after. If anyone can help me that would be great, thank you in advance!

My AS:
English Literature
History
Sociology
Philosophy of Religion and Ethics

Well if you wanted to become a Family Lawyer you would need a qualifying law degree- either the LLB or the Graduate Diploma. Be warned that the graduate diploma isn't funded by student finance- you will need at least £5k for fees in order to do this.

Read this article for information about Criminology

And Kent's graduate destinations

Looking at most of the destinations though it seems many are in careers that don't require a Criminology degree or are having to go onto further study to qualify in Law.

You could always do both? Some Uni's offer joints in Criminology and Law, and if you major Criminology, you'll leave with a BA (Hons) or if you major Law you could get LLB (Hons), however by majoring law there's still room to study Criminology which would help you within the court room. As a Criminology student myself, I wish I'd looked into combining with a Law degree as it covers perspectives of Criminal Justice and we cover Law within our Criminology degree to!
