The Access to HE Diploma (Policing) aims to enable students to develop academic skills to a level which allows them to progress to Policing, Criminology, Sociology and Psychology programmes at higher education level. You will study a wide range of units relevant to policing whilst also experiencing visiting speakers and other enrichment opportunities.
The course draws upon four main fields of study whilst also developing the study skills that will be required for higher education.
You will delve into subjects in law, criminology, sociology and psychology. Examples of units include:
The course is assessed through assignments on each unit of study. There are no end point assessments and your grades accrued through successful completion of assignments (which are graded Pass, Merit or Distinction) will form your overall grade.
Successful completion of this course will open opportunities to study at Higher Education level.
Students may wish to continue their study on our highly successful Foundation Degree in Policing (validated by Sheffield Hallam University).
