Established in 1990, the Navitas College of Public Safety (NCPS) is an Australian owned higher education provider offering degrees in Criminology, and Policing. NCPS is part of the Navitas Group.
Our degrees are delivered in trimester mode (three teaching periods per year) so students can complete their degree after two years of successful full-time study and enter the workforce earlier. Many of the NCPS teaching staff are qualified practitioners in the field, who bring their own work experience to their teaching and pass on not only the latest information but also real life examples. This means some classes will be taught by lawyers, police officers, criminologists, psychologists and other professionals.
The College includes a work placement in the Bachelor of Criminology and Justice so that students have the chance to practise skills in a work environment, meet professionals working in the industry and gain experience before graduation.
The Melbourne campus is easily accessible by public transport and a short walk from cafes, shopping districts and entertainment venues. Students have the option to study online, on campus or a combination of both. The NCPS campus is a fully equipped educational facility. It features a number of teaching rooms, student lounges, a well-equipped computer lab and wireless broadband internet throughout the campus.
Eligible students can access FEE-HELP to assist with deferring payment for their studies.
