Applicants will need a clear ambition to develop, and commit to the development of, a work-based research project designed to positively impact the operational practice of criminal justice.
The PgDip is a programme of learning that develops knowledge and skills with a clear building of momentum towards the completion of a 6000 word report and presentation in your bespoke area of interest.
