Course summary

The Foundation Year of the four-year programme aims to provide understanding of the key subjects in business to meet the prerequisites for study on the associated degree programme. The key areas of study will be effective communication and study skills combined with key subjects in business. You will be introduced to basic theories and concepts within the disciplines to provide a basic knowledge in all related subject areas. The programme will introduce you to essential areas of business necessary for progression onto business, accounting or law degrees. You will learn how to apply business concepts to real life organisations and develop communication, IT and study skills. Following completion of the Foundation Year, you will progress on to year one of your selected degree for the remainder three years of your course (four years if you are choosing to do the professional placement year).Designed to allow you to gain a qualifying law degree, as well as to explore crime and justice from a sociological perspective, LLB Law with Criminology is a course for people who wish to embark on a career in law and lift the lid on some of the most important and contentious issues facing society. An industry-focus is placed at the heart of every programme delivered at Salford Business School. Modules are designed around the current needs of employers and the law profession. We also place great emphasis on the development of your professional skills; you will have the opportunity to shadow working lawyers and judges, practise your learning during a year’s work placement and develop your client care skills by helping people looking for support from our legal advice schemes. In this way, you learn to put your academic knowledge into practice.Extra-curricular activities, like mooting and trips, are organised by our student-led Law Society, complementing your studies and enhancing your experience throughout. Through initiatives like the BASS scheme (in partnership with Salford Citizens Advice), you’ll have the chance to offer support to people with welfare benefits appeals in the region, allowing you to not only practise what you’ve learned, but provide help for vulnerable people in the community. In 2019, 90% of students agreed they had been provided with opportunities to apply their learning (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2019 data). Law with Criminology equips you with the tools you need for a successful career in the legal sector and an advanced knowledge of criminology. The programme is recognised by the Bar Standards Board and the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This means your studies will satisfy the requirements of the legal professional bodies for the award of a qualifying law degree with nine generic core law modules and one other specialist law module.
