Certificate programmes

If you are returning to study after a long period away from further or higher education, if you have not gained the A-level grades that you need to enter a full-time degree programme, or if you have non-standard qualifications, just one year of preparatory study is all you need:

Certificate (HE) Legal Method

Special feature: Field Court Chambers placement

Not yet ready to take on a full Law degree programme? Study for one year, on just one evening or day a week and gain a Legal Method (Certificate in Higher Education) that provides you with in-depth knowledge of the English Legal System, European Union Law and Human Rights, and with a range of essential skills in legal reasoning, research and communication. Enhance your CV with this University of London qualification, or, if you fall in love with the Law, use the Certificate to gain entry to a range of University Law programmes, including the LLB Law at Birkbeck.

Certificate (HE) Criminology

Special feature: modular structure

Build up your knowledge of Criminology by modular study. Fascinated by the psychological dimensions of crime? Interested in finding out the workings of the criminal justice system? Our modular Certificate in Criminology allows you to study one module a year or up to four modules a year, tailoring study to your life-style. Simply study a module for pleasure, or enhance your CV with a University of London Certificate in Criminology, or, if you find that you cannot leave Criminology alone, use the Certificate to gain entry into the second year of the BSc Criminology and Criminal Justice programme at Birkbeck.
