Police Sciences

USW's Police Sciences 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. On our Police Sciences degree, you will gain a detailed understanding of policing as you learn what it takes to be an efficient police officer who is ready for the challenges of the 21st century. From cybercrime and digital forensics to community safety and protecting the vulnerable in society, your learning experiences will make use of the latest technology. We devised our Police Sciences 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. Facilities are outstanding. We are one of the few universities in the world to have a Hydra Simulation Centre, which is used to train police officers at all levels – from Constable to Chief Constable. This means that our students use exactly the same system that the police use to train their staff to be better officers. Our Crime Scene House is where you can practise your crime scene investigation techniques on campus. We also have forensic facilities where you can explore and analyse forensic evidence. We also have interview rooms with CCTV systems so you can observe and assess your interview skills. Our Police Sciences course is based at Glyntaff. USW Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
