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.
