Course Information

Our Professional Policing course is 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.

We are dedicated to giving you the skills that you will you need to pursue a career in Law enforcement. You will have the chance to apply what you learn in real-life scenarios in our purpose-built facilities through working with colleagues from across the University. This collaborative working results in you gaining a highly effective and complete qualification that is valued and recognised by all the forces across the East Midlands and beyond.

Please note that having obtained a degree in ‘Professional Policing’ it does not guarantee you a job as a police officer. There is a strict eligibility criterion and several stages to the police application process which can be found on the College of Policing website.

Also, your award has a currency of 5 years from graduation until you join the service (this applies to all College of Policing approved pre-join degrees offered elsewhere). It means that you have 5 years to join the police service following your graduation. The reason is that with there being so many changes in policing and legislation, any longer than 5 years would make it outdated.
