Course summary

This course is designed in consultation with police forces for senior police officers (in-post) who wish to enhance their career. UWTSD will use an online/blended approach to minimise the time that officers would need to take off from their duties which represents an important feature of this course.

The MSc will allow senior officers to gain recognition for prior learning and experience and develop enhanced skills in leadership both on an operational and strategic level.

Reasons to choose this course

  • Complete your Masters while working full-time – regardless of your schedule – with our flexible blended-learning delivery.
  • Undertake a higher qualification programme designed for those in supervisory, management and leadership roles who want to further develop their understanding and critical skills.
  • The programme draws on and benefits from the expertise across other faculties in our university, allowing reflection on your individual approach to leadership in a complex environment.
  • The modules have been designed in consultation with serving leaders in the police service who are either currently active in areas of specialist police activity or have significant recent experience of delivery across organisational boundaries on a national scale.
  • Benefit from participation in Masterclasses with senior leaders from across a number of organisations which impact on policing policy and practice.


The modules and the assessments have been designed by the programme team collectively, to ensure they form a cohesive whole.

The key purpose of the assessment scheme is to enable students to demonstrate individually that they have met the aims of the programmes and achieved the learning outcomes at the standard required for the level of study. Assessment will also be used to provide feedback to students to assist in subsequent learning.

Career Opportunities

The opportunity to study at level 7 and undertake research within the force or partnership group will also not only benefit the individual but other staff within the organisation, as specific areas are investigated and concentrated on by someone who has a certain level of knowledge and understanding in a particular area.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert.
