If you have a strong sense of justice and the ability to diffuse tension in stressful situations, you might want to consider a career in policing.
By June 2021, policing will become a graduate-qualified profession in England and Wales – so a relevant degree is a requirement for anybody wanting to become a fully operational police officer. Licensed by the College of Policing, our course is the first approved ‘pre-join degree’ in the South West, providing an excellent route into the profession and ensuring the required standards are met.
A £1,000 subject award bursary is available for this course for 2023 entry UK UCAS applicants.
The course combines academic study with skills training to provide a thorough grounding in the theory and practicalities of contemporary policing.
You’ll gain practical policing skills by participating in live projects, a residential field trip and other exercises – helping you to build your skills and apply knowledge to real-world scenarios.
The emphasis is on the application of knowledge to the real world – with reference to the College of Policing’s Competency and Values Framework for Policing. Styles of assessment include problem-solving exercises, reports, case files, presentations, research projects, and a professional development portfolio.
