Course summary

The FdA Police and Criminal Justice Studies will develop the knowledge and skills you will need to work in the police and/ or wider criminal justice system. You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of organisations that are in place to tackle crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour, as well as with organisations working with the most vulnerable within society. You will be able to get involved in research focusing on your chosen field and will have the chance to participate in conferences. In addition, you will be provided with a wide range of opportunities to develop your understanding of the criminal justice system by taking part with events, volunteering and visits to our industry partners. The course is delivered by lecturing staff that currently work in the criminal justice system or have experience in the wider criminal justice sector. Staff on the course are best placed to prepare you for a range of roles in the criminal justice sector. The FdA Police and Criminal Justice Studies is suitable for individuals who want to achieve a foundation degree in this field, undertaking a course that is specifically tailored to the role of a police constable and police community support officer (PCSO). Current serving police constables, special constables and PCSO’s will benefit from the course and will be eligible for 'Recognition of Prior Learning' which is a system that may reduce the amount of modules you need to study to gain the qualification.
