Ready to make a difference? Police and Criminal Justice Studies is a new degree for those with an interest in a policing-related career and the academic study of policing. It provides volunteering and work-based learning opportunities and a national pre-join qualification that is recognised by police forces in England and Wales: the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing. We’re also one of the few universities granted Approved Provider status by the National College of Policing for this award. You will benefit from practitioner involvement in teaching. You will be able to make the most of volunteering and placement opportunities. You’ll stand out from the crowd with a Certificate in Knowledge of Policing. You will also acquire transferable skills equipping you for a career outside the criminal justice system.
