Course structure

The policing courses cover the National Police Curriculum in a practical and relevant way. You will learn not just the underpinning theories in criminology and the processes of criminal justice, but you will also be given specialist tuition from former police officers in the core areas of conducting effective investigations, policing communities, policing the roads, information and intelligence and response policing.

The two-year accelerated route has been designed to be taught alongside the three-year version for the first two semesters, thereby offering you the ability to transfer between routes to suit your circumstances.

You will also benefit from support through your own personal tutor, who will be an academic with policing experience and who will provide advice and mentoring throughout the course.

Your progress will be assessed through essays, reports, group work, seminar presentation and self-evaluation.

The Professional Policing degree will prepare you with the knowledge required to go on to apply for a role as a Police Constable position within the Police force. It does not guarantee that you will get such a position. It will be necessary to complete all separate recruitment processes associated with your chosen force, including further practice-based learning and assessment, demonstrating competence in your role and completing a two-year probationary period. If you wish to join the police, you must apply to and be accepted within a force within five years of graduation. If you decide against a career in policing, the course has been carefully designed to prepare you with transferable skills required to apply for a number of graduate-level positions.
