Top up your FdA or HND Public Service to an honours degree on this course co-created by public service employers. Advance your skills and knowledge in specialist areas such as youth justice and psychology, and find out what drives policy in the UK’s public services today. With a focus on issues such as public services policy, youth justice and politics, as well as on planning your future career, our top-up degree will further the academic knowledge and work-based skills you have gained from previous courses. In the final year, you’ll also undertake a Major Project in your own chosen area of public service. Thanks to our close links with fire and ambulance services, the police, the Prison Service, HM Revenue & Customs and the Armed Forces, you’ll benefit from course content that aligns closely with current practice, supported by visits from professionals and lecturers with experience of working in public service. You'll also have the opportunity to take part in activities that include: a trip to the Lake District involving activities such as kayaking, ghyll-scrambling and abseiling; roleplaying as a casualty in large-scale simulated mass emergency situations for London Fire Brigade; the training of Public Order policing; a trip to Berlin, including a tour of a Stasi prison.
