This course will provide you with the opportunity to train as Special Constable, or volunteer with the local force, undertake specialist modules in a wide range of contemporary policing issues, and build your practical policing experience throughout the degree.
A key feature of this course is practical development and will focus on developing the requisite skills and qualities necessary to commence a policing role, as stipulated by the College of Policing.
In your final year of study, you'll have the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of self-directed work in a relevant emerging issue in local / national / international policing.
Studying this degree in Professional Policing does not GUARANTEE any such employment with the police service as an officer or staff member; the degree provides you with academic entry requirement via the pre-join degree route.
Every police force in England and Wales sets its own recruitment process and selection policy, and entry requirements vary from force to force. You will be advised to check their eligibility against the force website, this may assist them in deciding whether to undertake the pre-join Degree course and/or pursue a career in policing.
This is a knowledge only degree with sign posted options towards practice as a Special Constable, or Volunteer, with the local force. Every student undertaking this degree will have the opportunity to undertake voluntary practice. Where students undertake voluntary practice they will share these experience with the wider group to enhance all students experiential learning throughout the 3-year degree programme.
Student success will not solely be dependent on sign posted voluntary opportunities in order to be successful on the programme.
Please note that due to operational considerations, the number of available places on the police pathway will be capped each year. Places will be decided on condition of successful short listing by Nottinghamshire Constabulary, passing all legal police checks.
Modules on this course are delivered by NTU experts alongside active serving police staff.
