Policing BA (Hons)

If you are interested in entering the police force, preparing for a non-operational role or even posts in the military or security services then this may be the course for you.

Taught by serving and retired police officers and other industry professionals, this degree will give you an insight into legislation, conducting investigations and the criminal justice system in the United Kingdom. Working with colleagues from across the University, you will have the chance to apply what you learn in ‘real-world’ scenarios. This results in a highly effective and complete qualification that is valued and recognised by all the forces across the East Midlands and beyond. We have extremely close professional links with Northants Police and this means that you are exposed to a wide range of guest speakers from detectives to child protection officers.

As part of the course you will have the opportunity to undertake modules which will enable you to gain a Certificate in Knowledge of Policing.
