WJEC Level 3 Diploma – Criminology
What’s it about?
This Level 3 diploma allows students to study a range of issues about crime and the justice system. This includes exploring definitions of crime, understanding criminal behaviours and investigating the pathway of evidence from crime scene to courtroom.
This course is assessed through both controlled assessment AND exam and so offers a varied approach to criminology studies.
We would recommend at least a grade 5 GCSE in English.
