Information for Prospective Students of the Police Executive Programme
The Police Executive Programme is designed for present or prospective police leaders from anywhere in the English-speaking world.
The Diploma and Masterâ€™s courses were originally developed in partnership with Bramshill Police College to provide training for senior police officers in the study of crime and crime-related issues. They are underpinned by several key concepts: continuing professional development, collaborative learning, critical thinking and reflective practice. Participants on the Master's courses are encouraged to reflect on, review and evaluate past, current and future practice.
The Police Executive Programme is distinct from the M.St. in Applied Criminology, Penology and Management course, which is designed for probation, prison and judicial practitioners. However, there are many occasions where the participants in the two courses meet, providing opportunities for interaction between professionals working in different part of the criminal justice system. Students on the courses also benefit from the state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in our modern building, the Radzinowicz Library of Criminology which houses one of the world's leading research collections on crime and criminology, and the opportunity to study in one of the world's foremost universities, surrounded by nearly eight hundred years of history.
