A Levels: Law and Legal Pathway

Course Code: ALP4 Duration: 2 Years Attendance: Full Time Location: Farnborough Campus Start Date: 09/09/2024    


About the course

Study Criminology and Law alongside your choice of a third subject.

A Levels are a great choice for those who thrive in a classroom setting and want to study more than one subject.

Classes at Farnborough are close-knit and often smaller than those at larger sixth forms, so you can look forward to plenty of opportunities for feedback and support.

Our team of friendly, qualified lecturers will provide resources and guidance to help you feel prepared for your next steps after college, whether that’s university, an apprenticeship, or employment.

By looking at popular combinations of A Levels, we have grouped our subjects together to offer you a distinct set of choices that form a pathway to particular university courses and careers. Your pathway consists of three A Level subjects, with an additional subject available for each pathway.

Law determines what is right and wrong in our society. Within the study of law, you will explore the English Legal System, discovering how criminals are dealt with and the ways that laws influence our parliamentary system. You will have opportunities to discuss and debate current legislation and the advantages or disadvantages these can bring.

Plus your choice of either:

Choice 1: Biology

 Have you ever wondered what the human body is made of, how we fight off diseases, and what role plants play in our lives? The study of biology provides a fascinating insight into all of these areas and more. At Farnborough, you will learn hands-on in our science lab, bringing biology to life through exciting experiments, research projects and dissections.

Choice 2: English

The way we use language can shape the difference between a gripping dramatic novel, an entertaining play and a powerful news article. At Farnborough, you can look forward to learning in close-knit classes with opportunities to discuss and debate literature. You will explore a range of novels, plays and poetry, as well as sharpening your skills in written and spoken word

Choice 3: Philosophy

Philosophy explores the responses to some of life’s big questions, encouraging you to question and analyse your own views of the world around us. You will learn to develop logical arguments supported by observational evidence, as well as examining the discoveries and opinions of the world’s most famous philosophical thinkers.

Choice 4: Psychology

Studying psychology will give you a fascinating insight into the human mind, seeking to explain human behaviour and interaction through scientific research and social experiments. You will explore the different branches of psychology that seek to explain our thoughts, emotions and behaviour, discovering the influences of biology, child development, mental health and more.
