This programme will provide you with valuable insights and skills that will allow you to carry out computer crime investigations, understand contemporary issues in policing, and study the complexities of digital criminal networks, including the development of security software and systems.
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Policing Studies and Cybercrime honours degree programme yet.
Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
As part of the suite of Policing Studies programmes, taught within the Centre for Advanced Policing Studies, this degree will take you on a critical exploration of contemporary policing issues enabling you to develop specialist skills and prepare you for a rewarding career.
You are strongly encouraged to become a Special Police Constable, a police volunteer or to volunteer in some other way within the criminal justice field for the duration of your studies on the Policing Studies degree programmes. We will assist and support you to identify such opportunities and in making applications for such roles.
