Officers in a line up

Take the fast-track into policing

Introducing the new accelerated route to the career you’ve always dreamed of.

How it works

The two-year BA (Hons) Professional Policing (Accelerated)* degree has been developed in partnership between Nottinghamshire Police and the University of Derby and is the first degree of its kind in the country.

The course, which begins in September 2020, has already generated significant interest, with more aspiring students being encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Five reasons to take the fast-track into policing:

  1. Complete your degree a year ahead of similar courses
  2. Save on tuition fees, accommodation and living costs
  3. Get frontline experience as a volunteer Special Constable while you study
  4. Receive exactly the same training as a full-time Nottinghamshire Police officer
  5. Fast-track your way to becoming a full-time police officer when you graduate
