Criminology at UniversityWatch
Hi, I'm currently in the process of applying to University however I'm having trouble differentiating between courses and universities since I have not been able to visit any open days. I would like to go to one of the Russell Groups but they all especially look very similar too.I have no idea what uni I want to go to., does anyone have any suggestions??
I think it your position, I would probably make an excel document containing the universities which you might wish to apply to. The Guardians ranking of universities for criminology can be found here (https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...y-league-table).
I would also recommend considering whether it is pure Criminology which you wish to study, although we are not a Russell Group university, the range of courses offered at Hull can be found below.
Explore the diverse factors that cause crime with our pioneering BA Criminology degree.

Criminology with Psychology
Alongside gaining a thorough understanding of crime and criminal justice, you'll also explore human behaviour, performance and decision making.
Law with Criminology
Complete a qualifying law degree while also developing an understanding of aspects of criminology and criminal justice.
This hands-on degree will give you the knowledge and skills to become a police officer.
Psychology with Criminology
Accredited by the British Psychological Society, this degree combines the interrelated disciplines of psychology and criminology.
It may also be worth considering the opportunities offered at the various universities, for example, if there is the opportunity to do a placement to gain hands on experience. I would also recommend going to a Virtual Open Day and speaking to the students and/or lecturers about why they chose to study where they do.
If you were interested in any of the offerings available at Hull or wanted a students perspective of what it is like to study a Criminology Degree then our ambassador Gabrielle can be contacted here.
Best of luck,
