Course summary

**Course overview**- Take a step towards becoming a highly skilled, multi-competent Police Constable. This Professional Policing Foundation Entry Degree leads on to a full BSc (Hons) programme.- Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme. The BSc (Hons) Professional Policing is pre-recognised by the police service as one of the entry routes for the role of police constable.- You’ll learn a broad spectrum of policing practice including; response policing, policing communities, policing the roads, information and intelligence and conducting investigations.- There’s also a focus on developing professional responsibility in areas such as the study of vulnerability and risk, digital policing and counter terrorism.**Why study with us**- Your learning is reinforced by practical experience, achieved through operational deployment rotations across five areas of professional practice.- Our School has outstanding facilities including Forensic Crime Scene Houses and the Hydra Minerva Suite for disaster management simulation.- Opportunities within the University and the police force will develop your knowledge, skills and behaviours, helping you achieve academic and operational competence.**Further information**- The police service has its own selection procedure and entry requirements, which include physical requirements as well as background and vetting enquiries. Further detail is included in the course handbook.- As you’ll be working with vulnerable groups of individuals, including children, you’ll need a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance (formerly termed CRB). We’ll be able to guide you through this process once you have been offered a conditional place of study here. If your Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check proves to be unsatisfactory, your offer of a place may be withdrawn.- If you’ve already enrolled on a course and your DBS check subsequently discloses a criminal conviction, you may be asked to withdraw from the course even if you have already started. If you think your DBS check will disclose a previous conviction, please contact the course leader for advice as not all convictions may preclude you from continuing with the course.
