  • Why study this course?

    The Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management (Policing and Security) program further develops students' high-level professional practice by analysing the challenges of contemporary executive leadership, and equipping graduates with the skills to meet them. The Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management (Policing and Security) examines national and international policing and related regulatory professions in the context of its theoretical, conceptual and empirical foundations.

  • Credit and pathways

    Credit for prior learning and credit for current competencies will be granted to eligible applicants.

    More about Credit

    Officers of the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF) will receive credit for completion of HKPF’s Probationary Inspector Course as well as the International Executive Development Program jointly delivered by the Hong Kong Police College and Canadian Police College and any other relevant postgraduate study to a maximum of 50% of the requirement of the course in which they enrol.

    No requirement for undergraduate degree

    In recognition of service in the Hong Kong Police Force, officers with more than five years' experience will not need to hold an undergraduate degree in order to commence postgraduate studies. Those with less than five years' service may like to consider the Bachelor of Policing.

    Probationary Inspector Course

    In recognition of the rigor of the Hong Kong Police Force's Probationary Inspector Course, graduates of this course will be entitled to credit for two subjects (16 points) towards their study. This is half of the requirement for a Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management (Policing and Security).

    International Executive Development Program

    Under a Memorandum of Understanding between the Canadian Police College and Charles Sturt University, AGSPS has recognised the standard of the Canadian Police College programs and in particular the International Executive Development Program. Graduates of this program will be entitled to credit for two subjects (16 points) towards their study.

    Other relevant postgraduate study

    Credit for other postgraduate study in policing, criminology, public administration, management and related fields will be considered on a case–by-case basis.

  • Academic expectations

    For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.

    Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.

    Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).

    Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.

    Throughout their studies, CSU students have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English Language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to their discipline. This ongoing development will enable students to effectively participate in their course and graduate as competent professionals.
