Police Sciences

If you want to join the police service, the BSc (Hons) Police Sciences degree will help prepare you for job opportunities in this sector. We devised our police studies course by consulting with the police service and the College of Policing, so what you learn is relevant and meets specific requirements set by police forces, including the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing. Taught by former police officers, police staff, and internationally renowned academics, the Police Science degree will prepare you for the challenges of modern policing and related professions, such as the UK Border Agency, security organisations (MI5/MI6), the National Crime Agency, HM Revenue and Customs, the military police, and private organisations that provide a policing function. You’ll develop knowledge and practical applications of criminal law, scenes of crime, criminology, police management, and the latest aspects of criminal investigation. You’ll also gain policing and management skills for use at all levels, from managing yourself to planning large policing operations. As part of the Police Science course, you can gain the Certificate in Knowledge of Policing, which is currently required as a pre-join qualification for a number of UK police forces.
