Why choose this course?


Following the requirement by The College of Policing, all new police officers will be required to hold an approved degree in policing by 2020.


Policing in England and Wales is a complex activity characterised by the need to carefully consider how law, values, social policy and organisational priorities should be interpreted and applied. As police forces in England and Wales aim to adapt to meet the demands of the 21st century, discover an in-depth degree developed in partnership with North Wales Police.

  • develop knowledge of the broader criminal justice system
  • demonstrate advanced skills in dealing effectively and sensitively with members of the public
  • On completion of the course, have the necessary legal and policing knowledge and key transferable skills to meet the operational requirements of the police service.
