    The AGSPS has a global reputation as a leading provider of postgraduate research and education for professionals in policing, law enforcement, regulation, emergency management, and security.

    • broad choices in electives which can be taken from a range of AGSPS courses such as Investigations, Intelligence, Counter Terrorism, Emergency Management, Corruption and Financial Crime
    • lecturers who understand and can support officers who are working in demanding and often unpredictable police roles

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.

    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.
