I was thinking of applying to criminology but I read that the job aspects aren’t very promising, so I thought I could try law AND criminology, as a double degree. Would that give me more career opportunities? Will this double degree also count as a law degree in any way?

I know that there’s law WITH criminology, and law AND criminology. I’m assuming that law WITH crim is basically law but with some criminal aspects. So, if I apply for law AND crim, would I be learning about those two subjects independently?

Would it serve as both a law and a criminology degree?

It is a single degree.

You would need to establish if it is considered to be a qualifying law degree. Many combined degrees are not.

Those with non qualifying degrees can take a conversion course.

Read up on cilex as an alternative method of qualifying. Or even legal apprenticeship.

It is a single degree and would only count as a qualifying Law degree if it was a LLB rather than a BA, which it will clearly state on the degree title, like this one at Portsmouth

I can’t thank you enough for this reply! I didn’t know that a BA wasn’t a qualifying law degree and I would have applied if I hadn’t know prior. Thank you very much for your help!
