Our degree courses with Foundation year offer the opportunity to prepare you for advanced study before you progress onto a full honours degree at the University of Westminster. Whether you do not feel ready for degree-level study, don’t have the right qualifications, want to change your subject specialism or return to study after an absence from education, we aim to encourage a broad range of students to undertake our Foundation year in order to progress onto their full honours degree with us.
The Foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to explore new ideas, opening up new perspectives on the key debates within your chosen field. Core modules accelerate your academic and professional development and you will also take modules from areas closely related to your chosen field, giving you the chance to develop a cross-disciplinary perspective on your course.
On successful completion of the Foundation year, you will be able to move on to study for the Criminology BA Honours degree which, over a further three years study, provides you with the opportunity to examine definitions of ‘crime’, how criminal law is made, and how understandings of crime and justice vary by the class, race or gender of offenders and victims. Using imaginative teaching and assessment methods, you will be encouraged to re-examine traditional and contemporary crime ‘problems’. You will consider classic theoretical frameworks, as well as emergent real-world case studies.
