Applied Criminal Justice Studies (Top-Up) BA (Hons)

This course is ideal if you are a serving or recently retired police officer, and would like an opportunity to study a range of areas within the field of criminal justice at a more challenging and academic level than you may have experienced before. If you have sufficient operational experience, this can be formally recognised through APCL and taken into account when gaining entry onto this top-up course.

This course will also be ideal if you are working within public services such as social work or the probation service and wish to pursue a degree in this varied field. Drawing on experience and expertise from subject areas such as law, criminology and psychology, we will provide you with the skills and knowledge required for a career within the criminal justice system.

If you are currently in full time education pursuing an HND or a foundation degree in a similar subject area then this top-up programme could be for you.
