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. This course is part of one of the most respected suite of forensic science programmes in the country, if not the world, and graduating from it will give you a significant advantage when it comes to getting a job in this highly competitive field. It’s an integrated Master’s course, which means you’ll get all the training associated with a BSc degree with some Master’s level in the area of analytical chemistry too, further boosting your employability. You’ll study forensic investigation, forensic biology, forensic chemistry and forensic anthropology, ultimately specialising in forensic chemistry with an emphasis on the application of spectroscopic techniques in forensic science.Our strong links with the local constabularies and hospital laboratories mean you’ll get the chance to undertake invaluable hands-on work experience. Our courses are an excellent basis for employment in this competitive sector. Our graduates are at work in all sorts of forensic science settings - as crime scene investigators, police officers, scientific support personnel and intelligence analysts, at home and overseas.
