Crime Science, Investigation and Intelligence (Distance Learning)

The DL version of this course offers the same opportunity to develop holistic approaches to investigations using advances in the fields of science and technology as the campus based programme. Attendees will enhance their ability to critically evaluate and manage investigations by embracing the latest developments in investigative strategies, tools and techniques in a proven distance learning model. All applicants should apply as soon as possible to reserve a place and ensure adequate preparations are made for the start of your studies. The latest we can receive an 'on time' application (with all associated documentation) is 7 September 2015. Applications received after this date may be processed, but your course induction and start to studies may well be disrupted. On this course you can: Follow a distance learning programme with experts in this method of teaching; take up advanced study of issues of interest from your first degree in a related subject, or recent experience in investigation, intelligence or security; develop professional expertise in criminal investigation to support specialisation in this field. Students are encouraged to develop their own links with the Institute's connections to police forces in Hampshire, Surrey and London. The programme also covers a range of criminal justice issues while developing the skills to produce a portfolio of knowledge and abilities that supports career development opportunities in a wider range of careers. The course aims to enhance employability and career prospects in an area where there is a wide range of careers in investigation or intelligence work. That includes employment in a broad range of public and private sector bodies where, amongst other things, the search for best value and the need to manage risk effectively, have created many more openings for financial investigators, compliance officers and analysts.
