Earn while you learn at the University Centre Croydon

EDUCATION HAVEN: University Centre Croydon

AT THE University Centre Croydon (UCC) they have a wide range of higher education courses on offer for those wanting to study for a degree from this September. The University of Sussex (one of the top universities in the UK), award our BA (Hons) Criminology, Psychology and Social Justice degree.

London Metropolitan University award our LLB (Hons) law degree, meaning that students get the benefit of online resources from our virtual learning environment and London Metropolitan University’s. This year, their students have gained more 1st class honours degrees than ever before and more of the students now progress to postgraduate study at top universities.

They have made courses very accessible to local people. Course fees are very competitive at £6,000 per year compared with over £9,000 per year charged by most universities.

This year, University Centre Croydon are introducing the option for students to undertake a work placement year on the Law degree and on the Criminology degree. Students will be able to apply for the placement year working as a Prison Officer at a local prison. The opportunity includes full training and successful applicants will earn in excess of £30,000 for the placement year. Students will then return to UCC after the placement year to complete their final year of study.

The added bonus of this placement opportunity is that students graduating from this programme can begin working straight away as a prison officer if they wish. Over the course of the Criminology Psychology and Social Justice degree students will develop their critical thinking skills and learn to examine the environment around them from many different perspectives.

The BA (Hons) CPSJ gives students the option of entering many different fields of employment or further study; during the second year of the course students will undertake a volunteering module where they will be placed at an organisation (of their choice) relative to one of the fields of study.

The programme is ideal for students looking to go into careers in Youth Justice; Crime Prevention, Criminal Justice, Conflict Resolution, Mental Health, Research and Development and many other fields both nationally and internationally.

The LLB is a qualifying Law degree which offers progression for graduates, to the vocational stage of legal training in becoming a solicitor or barrister. Whilst learning the 7 subjects of legal knowledge you will also be introduced to practical legal skills such as advocacy and negotiation. Small class sizes ensure that students are given adequate support to develop their understanding of legal issues, along with study skills classes.

Their flourishing student led Criminology Society organises regular events and public lectures designed to supplement student learning and promote the student community.
