A postgraduate qualification is a major achievement and greatly valued by employers. Recent surveys show that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at the professional or managerial level and less likely to be unemployed. For some jobs, a postgraduate qualification may be essential, for others it offers a competitive edge.
As companies seek out graduates with the most advanced skills, a Postgraduate Certificate in Criminology and Criminal Psychology could give you the competitive edge you need to advance to these upper-level positions.
Career opportunities for graduates exist within a variety of occupations across both public and private sectors.
This can include one of the hundreds of different roles within the Police Service (from analytical Police Staff roles to serving Police Officers), working with offenders from support workers to probation and prison staff, working within victim services and roles within a variety of law enforcement agencies from the Security Services to the National Crime Agency.
