The Foundation course in Forensic Science is for students who don't meet the entry for the BSc (Hons) Forensic Science degree. You'll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your scientific skills and knowledge.
Accredited by The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, this Forensic Science course has a strong focus on employability and you'll study the entire process from crime scene to court.
Following successful completion of a common first year curriculum, students choose to follow either an Analytical or a Biology Forensic Science pathway depending upon their personal preference during the second and subsequent third year.
You will be trained in standard practices and techniques used in crime scene investigation, as well as laboratory analysis of evidence and its interpretation. You'll study specialist branches of forensic science, including criminalistics, chemistry, biology, anthropology, major scene investigation and toxicology.
Our Forensic Science course has a very strong scientific base, which means you'll be employable in a number of scientific sectors.
