Bachelor of Policing


Bachelor of Policing

When recruiting new law enforcement officers, most policing services recognise the value of a Bachelor of Policing but they also require recruits to complete training within the police service in order to become a police officer. The Western Sydney University policing degree programs are aimed at preparing students for a future in police forces, correctional services, border protection and child protection services.

Our graduates find employment in the NSW Police force, Victorian Police force, Federal Police force, as well as social work, juvenile justice, and ASIO to name a few.



Criminology and Policing Courses

Our Bachelor of Policing is the only metropolitan Sydney-based policing degree.

This degree places a strong emphasis on modern policing methods. Regular consultation with NSW Police recruiters means you’ll increase your chances of joining the NSW or Australian Federal Police agencies. You may choose to study criminology or criminal and community justice, and develop the skills essential for corrective service roles.

As a graduate, you may find a career in policing, other Commonwealth or state law enforcement and criminal justice agencies, intelligence agencies, border protection, security management, fraud management and investigation roles within the corporate or local government sectors, forensics, and computer forensics.

Graduates also seek roles in corrective services, probation and parole, crime prevention, or as policy advisors, or social workers in the area of community corrections.



Bachelor of Policing ( Leadership Program )

With further training, you may become a registered police officer. This degree opens the doors to the NSW and Federal Police forces. Police officers may specialise in certain areas including:

counter-terrorism, child protection, investigation, human resources, education and training and corrections. They are responsible with enforcing the law and detecting and preventing crime.
