Overview

If you don't have the right qualifications to apply for the BSc (Hons) Professional Policing degree, the foundation course offers an alternative route into degree study.

You’ll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well-structured support, before progressing to the first year of the police degree.

You will be taught by former police officers and leading academics and enjoy outstanding facilities on campus. 

Careers

The Professional Policing (Including Foundation Year) (Hons) course at University of South Wales will prepare you for a career as a police officer, along with other police staff roles, such as community support officers, control room operators and analysts. 

The Professional Policing course is recognised as one of the three routes to becoming a police constable. It does not guarantee entry into the police following graduation, however those with a Professional Policing degree who are accepted by the police will have a shortened initial police training and this qualification will enable to you to apply to your chosen force and if accepted receive the shortened initial training for a period of up to five years after graduation.

Whereas this police course is a recognised route to becoming a police constable, graduates will still need to satisfy the recruitment requirements of their chosen force in terms of medical and fitness requirements, as well as background and security checks.
