The Criminology Advanced Diploma is designed to aid you in increasing your knowledge of the UK Criminal Justice system.

Course Introduction

You will similarly learn how theoretical and practical thoughts on crime influence the criminal justice system.

Although we do not assume you already have recent experience of criminology, or any other crime based subjects, we aim to introduce you to new views on crime problems and the debates surrounding them. This Criminology course will introduce you to Criminology as a study which evaluates many key debates. In the course you will examine both criminal behaviour and causes of crime. The way we will do this is by examining theoretical debates in which you will also learn and discuss historical and modern notions of dealing with crimes and their criminals. By taking this course you will also achieve a higher understanding of the UK justice system in modern Britain.

At this level we provide you with essential wisdom on the key principles of the study of Criminology. In addition, we provide you with the necessary information for progression into other fields of specialised crime and justice at a similar level.


This course comes to you as a paper course pack which you can work through in your own time. By reading through the lessons on the course and with the help of a personal tutor you will be able to learn all of the necessary knowledge required to tackle the tutor marked assignments that are used to assess the course. Alternatively, you can study for this course online to save some money on your course and study through the internet with the materials available 24/7 on any computer or smart device.


A tutor will be able for support via post or e-mail, with our student support team also on hand to help with any queries you may have. Assignments must be submitted to your tutor through email and these are then marked as soon as possible.
