Policing is a complex, dynamic, discipline. Further academic study in this exciting and challenging field will build on the skills and knowledge you have acquired through study for your Foundation degree and will equip you with the skills necessary for a range of professional responsibilities within the field of policing. Delivered by experienced academics and former senior police officers who bring a wealth of theoretical and practical knowledge to enhance your learning, this top-up programme is delivered over two years’ part-time study in recognition of the fact that you may be in full-time employment. Three modules are studied each year. In year two a double module dissertation by way of literature review allows you to pursue an area of policing or crime investigation which is of particular interest to you.
As part of our pioneering collaboration with Lancashire Constabulary, all students on the Policing and Criminal Investigation degree will have the opportunity to shadow a crime scene investigator as they conduct their work.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
