Overview

Policing is changing - adapting and evolving to meet the needs and requirements of today and tomorrow's society. At the University of East London, we are developing a suite of qualifications for those already in policing or those wishing to join through our Centre of Professional Policing (the CoPP).

This course is for existing police personnel with over three years of service (and out of their probation), and for those who have recently retired. It is a top-up final year, which recognises existing officers' training, knowledge, skills abilities and practice, leading to a BSc (Hons) Policing Studies degree.

Serving police staff are encouraged to make internal enquiries to their own respective police service for bursary opportunities when applying to undertake this top-up degree.

Please contact  Charles Crichlow (C.Crichlow@uel.ac.uk) or Ruwan Uduwerage-Perera (R.Uduwerage-Perera@uel.ac.uk) for further information.
