  • About This Course

    Criminology for Beginners has been written for those who wish either to study criminology for fun or to sample a taster for further study and accreditation.  It has been written in easy to follow terms and will enable the student to understand the basics behind forensics, autopsies, criminal types, processing a crime scene, profiling methods, and will examine past cases and policing methods as well as crime and punishment.

    About Criminology

    Primarily concentrating on murder cases, the student will be able to gather an understanding of how autopsies provide information and clues not just on the cause of death but also on the lifestyle of the victim and the possible identity of the perpetrator of the crime.

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down. It’s like reading a good book then having a test on it. There is no pressure, no tutor hurrying you up and no time limits on the tests, just how learning should be. The written report I received after the ...

Excellent course and feedback

It refreshes your memory of what you have been studying. The Anatomy and Physiology was the hardest part of the course but with plenty of studying it is achievable. The final exam which you pay for if you want to t...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.

Great study, own pace, actionable feed/bk

was very impressed, overall the course has good content, easily digestible. I love online studies as you can go as quickly or slowly as you want, online tutors to help answer any questions. I think that the units, could have better quality content, broken into easier formatted module titles. Nice comments returned on improvements and context to think in own life scenarios! They certainly give ...
