The nature of crime is constantly changing, and so our policing must adapt accordingly. Licensed by the College of Policing, our Pre-Join Degree in Professional Policing is ideal preparation for a career as a police officer, enabling you to focus on key policing competencies as outlined in the National Policing Curriculum and approved within the Police Education Qualifications Framework. You will assess the core functions of policing in society, discover the challenges faced in policing crime, and address themes such as ethics, integrity, sharing information and intelligence. From criminal investigations and interview techniques to cybercrime and counterterrorism, the programme will equip you with an in-depth understanding of the role of police officers, while also immersing you in the criminal justice system and elements of law and criminology. On graduation, you will have the theory and practical skills required to enter the modern policing workforce.

Assessment methods include essays, formal examinations, report writing, practical-based demonstrations, case studies, oral presentations and academic posters.
