Yes, our strong ties with police recruiters mean you’ll increase your chances of joining the NSW, Victorian or Australian Federal Police. But you can also fulfil your dreams of working in the criminal and community justice systems, corrective services, border protection, intelligence, security/fraud management, forensics, or computer forensics. What about child protection, probation and parole, social work? A career as a policy advisor? An investigative role in the corporate or local-government sectors?

Western offers the only Policing degree based in metropolitan Sydney. Plus, you’ll have access to a state-of-the-art crime-scene training and research facility. It enables you to practice realistic crime scene investigation and gives you a hands-on introduction to collecting evidence.
