Course summary

Policing is an incredibly rewarding career which gives you the opportunity to work in the community and protect members of the public. From 2020, the recruitment process for Police Constable recruits is changing, with the Pre-join Policing degree being one of the Policing Education Qualification Framework (PEQF) accredited entry routes into the force. This degree course has been purposefully designed to give you both an academic and professional understanding of policing, serving as a comprehensive introduction to the policing industry. In addition to proven, traditional methods, students also benefit from personal perspectives from people in the industry. Each year, several professional guests visit the students. Previous guests have included members from the Independent Police Complaints Commission, a former Police Sergeant for the West Midlands Police Force and a Mental Health Triage speaker. We also focus on current and future crime trends in addition to historic cases, so that you gain a rounded understanding of the policing industry.
