Universities launch Thames Valley Police degree

Help

A university degree launched by Thames Valley Police will see some future officers pay for their own training.

Billed as an "alternative method of entry" to the force, the two-year course will cost up to £9,000, while in-house training is salaried and free.

The 120 foundation degree places at Oxford Brookes University, Bucks New University and the University of Northampton and an unconfirmed site, will be available next year.
