Postgraduate Policing

Learning from ex-senior professional police officers, police staff and expert academics in emergency services management, our MSc Policing and Law Enforcement Investigation and MSc Strategic Leadership in Emergency Services and Law Enforcement immerse you in the world of police investigations and critical incident management.

Whether you are a recent graduate or already working for the emergency services or a law enforcement agency, you will discover the practical and theoretical techniques needed to conduct and manage high level police and law enforcement investigations or develop the strategic leadership skills to identify, manage and lead responses to critical incidents.

Alternatively, you can interrogate a variety of aspects of policing and law enforcement in depth on our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy.

The £6m Law and Psychology building provides contemporary teaching and learning facilities for students in the School of Law, Criminology and Policing.

The three-storey building includes a 250-seat lecture theatre, seminar and tutorial rooms, and social learning areas which encourage a more informal and interactive style of learning.

Elsewhere on campus, there is a mooting room (a mock courtroom) and the EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, which simulates a wide range of crime scenes.

The EHU Police Training and Simulation Facility, part of which is furbished as a police station, is used to simulate a wide range of crime scenes. This will enable Law and Policing students to work together in areas such as gathering and analysing evidence, including forensic evidence at crime scenes, as well as practicing interview techniques used by the police through role play, while also ensuring that the rights of suspects are upheld.
