Course Summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Thanks to our unique 2-star accreditation with the Forensic Science Society and our close links to Lancashire and Greater Manchester constabularies, this course is a solid, widely respected route into the highly competitive field of forensic science and criminal investigation. Learning from former CSIs, you’ll develop a broad understanding of forensic science from a legal perspective and, in your second and third years, you’ll get the chance to work alongside local police CSI and scientific support teams - indeed, because our course is mapped against National Occupational Standards for CSIs, you could even start work in the field while you’re studying.In such a competitive job market, UCLan graduates stand out. You’ll find them at work as forensic scientists and analysts in both private companies and for the police force, and working as crime scene investigators, police intelligence analysts and police officers, at home and overseas.
