Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Are you interested in working in policing or the wider criminal justice system? If you’re good at problem solving and want to make a difference, there are lots of options open to you, both within and outside policing.

This degree allows you to study policing in depth, get tangible experience in the areas you are interested in, and see where your talents and interests lie.

Critically study policing

Throughout the course, you’ll learn about contemporary policing and criminal justice processes, with a particular focus on criminal investigation in England and Wales.

Alongside operational policing, we’ll cover a wide range of areas such as the police use of firearms, the wide demands placed upon policing, miscarriages of justice, and major crime investigations.

You’ll gain exposure to some of the real challenges facing policing today, exploring current reforms and what they mean, and looking at the importance of accountability, citizenship and ethics.

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placements Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field.

We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special skills for work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time.

Placements Plus is all about helping you get some valuable experience under your belt while you’re a student. To increase your choices later, and help you get the graduate-level job you want.

Employability

What are my career prospects

Policing is changing rapidly, and many new police officer and non-police officer opportunities are opening up, which this degree allows you to explore and prepare for.

By the end of the programme, you will be qualified to work in large number of roles in the criminal justice system. This includes roles in the police service, the prison service, the probation service, youth offending teams, drug action teams, community partnerships, the Home Office and crime analysis.
