Professional Policing BSc (Hons)

From 2020, policing in England and Wales will become a graduate profession.

Building on the success of our well-established Police Science degree, the new Professional Policing degree will prepare you for the challenges of modern policing and related professions.

The police course has been designed to meet all the core requirements of the National Police Curriculum for the College of Policing's pre-join degree in Professional Policing.

Modules cover key areas of policing knowledge such as counter terrorism, covert activities, law and the justice system, crime scene awareness, digital policing, cyber-enabled crime, protecting the vulnerable in society, and community policing.

You will be taught by former police officers and leading academics and enjoy outstanding facilities on campus. We are one of the few universities in the world to have a Hydra Simulation Centre, which is used to train police of?cers at all levels.
