Policing

Socially conscious? Committed? Responsible? A career in policing is the right fit for you. With opportunities for practical experience throughout your course, we’ll give you a practical path into the force.

As well as learning in regular classrooms, you’ll interview suspects and gather evidence in our Police Training and Simulation facility. Combined with the regular visits and guest lectures from qualified, experienced police officers across many fields of expertise, your experience here will give you the confidence you need to kickstart your career.

Practise your skills in a safe space with our Police Simulation and Training Facility and new Immersive Simulation Suite.

Our course is an official Pre-Join degree licensed by the College of Policing.

You’ll get practical experience throughout the course, including collaborating with law students and interviewing suspects.

Facilities

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 265-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) where Law and Policing students can train and practice their advocacy skills and cross-examination techniques, as well as preparing for giving evidence in court.

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.
