Policing

Licensed by the College of Policing, our BSc (Hons) Professional Policing degree provides a pre-join route which focuses on key policing competencies as outlined in the National Policing Curriculum and approved within the Police Education Qualifications Framework. While successful completion of this degree will not guarantee recruitment to the police, it will greatly enhance your prospects of securing a role as a police constable or police staff.

We also offer a BA (Hons) Policing degree which provides an in-depth study of policing, crime and punishment, as well as the English legal system. This programme will immerse you in the study of criminal investigations, police powers, the culture of professionalism, the Police Code of Ethics and the Victims’ Code. The course provides ideal preparation for a career where investigative skills or practical legal knowledge are required. You will also be well placed to pursue a degree-holder entry route to the police (for which further study will be required) on graduation.
