About the School of Law and Social Sciences

Our School is all about making a difference in the world. This is reflected in the range of subjects we teach, our interest in social justice, and our focus on how to make life better and fairer.

We provide you with the support you need to thrive in your university life and beyond. You’ll work together with academics who are passionate about sharing their expertise and interests with you.

Not all universities are the same. Our focus on real-world issues feeds through to our lectures. Here, theories are not simply academic subjects to learn; instead, we always look at how ideas explain and impact on ‘real life’.

Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, has commented that the University often explores issues others shy away from.

Our students become resilient during their studies. The confidence, adaptability, creativity and courage they build with us means that they relish a rapidly changing world.

We’re a modern, tight-knit university where you won’t get lost in the crowd. You will further your love of your subject and we know that, nationally, social science graduates have great job prospects.

What makes us great?

  • Thrive in an environment that focuses on you as an individual
  • Enjoy small class sizes and all the contact time you need 
  • Learn from real academics rather than graduate students
  • Build on the experience you already have – you know more than you think!
  • Help us to make a difference in the world
