I'm really stuck on what and where I want to study for uni. I really enjoy crime, however would this be a realistic pathway to take?
My other options are Sociology and English. It really does depend on my A levels but I would like your opinions.

If you enjoy crime, then I'd say go for it - criminology is an amazing degree to pursue, and there's lots you can do with it. you could become a criminologist, a police/ corrections officer, forensic science technician, loss prevention specialist etc. all of these careers can be pursued with a bachelor's degree in criminology. it really is a realistic pathway to take

what a levels do you currently take?

Hi, I know it's been 2 months but I'd love to share my opinion on the topic. I am a Crime and Investigative Studies student myself.

Crime is interesting and I'm happy to see people interested in such a degree. If you're more into the psychological aspect of crime, then your best bet would be Criminology, although you can have a combined course, for instance, Criminology with Psychology, etc. That depends if you want to focus only on Criminology or you want another degree as part of your education.

If you're more into the investigation process of a criminal investigation, for example, evidence collection, interpretation of evidence, methodology of a criminal investigation, etc., your best bet would be to apply for Policing, Crime and Investigative Studies or Forensic Science. Personally speaking, a degree in Crime and Investigative Studies is more appealing to me because we get to study crime from the perspective of criminalists, forensic scientists or investigating officers. We have a lot of practicals regarding crime scene investigation and evaluation of evidence, hence if you're a person who wants diversity, this would be the course for you. Link for reference - https://aru.ac.uk/study/undergraduat...gative-studies

Of course, there are many universities that offer a degree in forensic science or policing, however, I can only share an opinion about Anglia Ruskin University. You can find more information about ARU here - https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=858
