LJMU’s suite of Policing Studies programmes take students on a critical exploration of contemporary policing issues as they develop skills and prepare for professional practice. All programmes conform to the learning requirements to achieve College of Policing Certificate in Knowledge of Policing.
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 theBA (Hons) Policing Studies and Forensics 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).
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.
