If you want to study on the BSc (Hons) Police Sciences Degree but don’t have the right qualifications, this one-year foundation course will help you build the skills, knowledge and confidence to progress to higher level studies. If you pass the Foundation Year in Police Sciences, you’ll have guaranteed progression to the first year of our BSc (Hons) Police Sciences degree. 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. 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. The Hydra Simulation helps you practise dealing with realistic scenarios such as major crime enquiries, so you will be able to develop your interview skills for critical incidents. The simulation suite allows you to experience these incidents in a safe learning environment, where you can test your ability to make decisions, take action and see the consequences. 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 degree is based at Glyntaff. USW Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
