All of this experience and knowledge feeds directly into original and thought-provoking material for all Policing Studies programmes taught in the Liverpool Centre for Advanced Policing Studies.
The team is also committed to ensuring you get the most out of your learning experience. They are available at set office times to meet you for one-to-one consultations to discuss course-related issues.
You will have a dedicated supervisor who will offer expert knowledge, guidance and support as you complete your dissertation.
Feedback will be available on the 15th working day after the submission date for a piece of work. That's because we believe that timely and constructive feedback is vital in helping you identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to develop further. You will normally receive extensive written feedback on your assessments, and occasional verbal feedback. All feedback is designed to help you achieve your full potential and get the most out of your studies, so staff will be available to discuss it with you and direct you to further support if you feel you need it.
Assessment is based on a range of research tasks and projects reflecting the skills developed by the various modules.
We understand that all students have different strengths and preferences when it comes to assessments, so we use a variety of methods to assess your work structured across the academic year. Assessment methods include: academic essays; annotated bibliographies; reflective research exercises; position papers; exams; reports; case studies; portfolios; online blogs and wikis; workplace practice; posters; oral presentations (individual and group); debates; reviews; group work and the dissertation/research project.
