Please see the standard entry requirements page for further details.
When applying to any of our Criminal Justice programmes it is essential that you provide a strong and relevant personal statement. You should aim to address exactly what interest you about your chosen course, which modules you are particularly looking forward to study and why and possible career paths that you intend to follow. You should also note any experience that you have had in paid or voluntary work that is relevant to the degree.
Remember that when you apply we have your qualifications and personal statement only, and so you really need to be 'sell yourself' and discuss pertinent and appropriate issues in your application.
Many applications have a variety of welfare related questions when they apply to LJMU including queries around funding, child care and so forth. Please visit our student welfare pages which discuss all of these issues.
