    Higher Education diploma
    i doubt you'd find a criminology degree with the diploma. They are fundamentally different. Criminology is an academic discipline focusing on social policy, and won't really help you much in terms of working with people. Having a look on the OU site, the diploma is only 58 credits, which really isn't that much, (it would make up like a half of a year), and it seems to be designed for people who are already working/volunteering in social care.

    Oh i thought you meant you wanted to study both at the same time when you said higher education, as in a criminology + diploma at the same time.
