I attended The University of Northampton studying BA Policing where I attended Park Campus. The Campus had very good facilities with everything that was needed. There was a 24 hour library at the campus which was very useful to get assignments completed. BA Policing was very challenging at times with opportunities to learn a vast amount of law and investigation. The facilities were very good as they allowed you to experience real life situations such as the use of the interview room and mock flat.
