BSc (Hons) Professional Policing
The BSc (Hons) Professional Policing 3 year degree will provide you with professional knowledge of the ethics, skills and attitudes that are critical to twenty-first-century policing. The course has been designed to meet the requirements of the College of Policing National Curriculum for the role of a Police Constable under the National Policing Education Qualifications Framework. We are licensed by the College of Policing to offer the Pre-join Degree in Professional Policing - a qualification recognised by police services that is achieved prior to recruitment.
A range of key topics will be studied in the area of crime, criminology, law, terrorism, associated psychology, sociology and criminal investigation. You will also learn through realistic scenarios and the use of a crime suite. The course is enriched by optional modules, giving you the opportunity to look deeper into issues such as Cybercrime or Forensic and Criminal Psychology. This course is perfect for students with an interest in working in policing, security or the criminal justice sector, or looking to study at Masters level. Please note: the degree has a currency of 5 years following graduation for recruitment into policing and you must still apply to the police force and satisfy their eligibility criteria. Interested students should contact the Police Service for more information.
