Course Information

It is essential that all investigations are carried out professionally, our Criminal and Corporate Investigation course will ensure that you gain the essential legal knowledge and ability to conduct professional investigations whilst securing admissible evidence. The combination of practical role-play based activities and classroom teaching ensures that you are confident in your skills and knowledge, allowing you to be valuable asset to any organisation on graduation.

If you are interested in a career in professional investigation, or you are an investigator seeking an academic qualification to enhance your skills, then this course will give you the career progression that you seek. The course provides you with a comprehensive introduction to key theoretical and practical issues, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to confidently undertake professionally conducted investigations.

Our Criminal and Corporate Investigation course has a wider focus than our BA Policing course, as the course modules are underpinned by national policing practices and initiatives, such as the nationally recognised, ‘Professionalising the Investigation Programme’. Throughout the course we look at a variety of investigation methods in great detail, such as interview technique, the law surrounding investigations and Cyber Crime. The real strength of the Criminal and Corporate Investigation course is that it has a strong practical element that allows you to demonstrate your skills in scenario-based investigations.

  • At Stage one you will examine the underpinnings of investigative technique, in particular the criminal justice system, evidence and procedures and the theory of investigating a scene of crime.
  • At Stage two you will be allowed to choose areas of interest such as Covert Investigations and Serious and Organised Crime, as well as developing your skills in criminal investigation.
  • At Stage three you will be able to tackle a subject in greater depth, which may be of particular relevance to a current or future employer. You will also have the opportunity to delve deeper into areas such as internal investigations and the most up-to-date and relevant information surrounding cyber crime and identity theft.
