Is it a fun course to do?
What do you cover in the topics?
What jobs can it lead you onto either from A-Level or Uni degree?
What other A-levels or vocations subjects pair very well with it?

Hi,
I am studying criminology at University. No subject is "fun" to do, but it is a very interesting subject. I did not do criminology as a subject at A-level, instead, I did psychology which had a unit covering criminology. Look at the specification of the exam board to know which topics will be covered as I can't help with that. A criminology degree usually leads to policing and other social work and sometimes solicitor as well (but I think you need to do additional courses as well). Finally, criminology pair a bit with everything because it is a subject which includes all the other subjects. I'm currently doing philosophy and law as minors. Other subjects include psychology, sociology, English and maths as well (a lot of statistics in criminology). Some topics cover biological explanations as well (all genes and brain stuff) so biology could go with it as well. If you have a look at the specification you will know exactly which topics are covered so you can select the most relevant subjects.
Hope that helps
