UEL's Centre of Professional Policing is at forefront of training police officers
University offers innovative policing courses and programmes
From 2020 anyone in England and Wales who wants to become a police officer will be required to hold a degree or be working towards the Police Constable Degree Apprenticeship.
Beginning in September 2019, the University will be offering a Bachelor of Science (BSc Hons) in Professional Policing, for entrance to the policing profession; plus, a Bachelor of Science (BSc Hons) in Policing Studies (Top-Up) which is suitable for existing and recently retired police officers.
While the BSc (Hons) in Policing Studies is a unique qualification offered by UEL. It is a one-year degree that will enable current police officers (and those recently retired) to have their knowledge, skills and experience recognised and counted towards the attainment of a degree.
