Course Summary:
Are you interested in learning more about the law or criminology? Leading directly into Solent's law or criminology courses, this foundation year programme aims to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to progress on to a related full undergraduate degree. Solent University's Law and Criminology Foundation Year is a direct entry point to one of our law or criminology undergraduate degree programmes. Ideal for those who do not have traditional academic qualifications, or who have spent some time away from formal education, the foundation year will prepare students for a return to academic study. Students are given comprehensive support and guidance with an ongoing assessment programme to establish effective learning. Working in small groups, students will learn the fundamental aspects of law and criminology, developing a range of valuable skills including analysis, research, problem solving, and written and oral expression. Students are also able to select business subject options. Learning is aided by discussions involving different views and perspectives and students also have access to our specialist moot courtroom for mock trials. Our well-stocked, modern library, and online facilities provide many opportunities to develop knowledge through self-directed study. Successful completion of the Law and Criminology foundation year will provide a pathway to the Law degree. Southampton Solent University's LLB has been designed to give graduates maximum flexibility when choosing their future progression. If you are hoping to become a solicitor or barrister, this course incorporates a Qualifying Law Degree and lays a professionally accredited foundation of knowledge – ideal preparation for the vocational training that you will be required to undertake after graduation. The course's professional accreditations ensure that it is providing high standards of education and training for future barristers and solicitors. These accreditations also act as a seal of approval from the industry, showing employers that the course meets the standards set by the industry itself. As a qualifying law degree, this LLB programme also exempts students from the initial stages of solicitor or barrister training for both the Law Society of England and Wales, and the Bar Council. This can shorten future professional training requirements by as much as one year. The University's moot courtroom enables students to practice their legal skills and gain courtroom experience. Southampton Solent University is a founding member of the Southampton City Law Network, which promotes the interests of local law students, teachers, lawyers, and other legal professionals. Connections made through this network have presented guest lectures for students, bringing the theory learnt in the classroom to life with real working examples.
