Course summary

Over the last few decades, information technology has transformed the way in which commerce and industry operate, but it has also provided criminals with a new way of committing crime, either against the computer itself or the information it holds. Computer forensics has been developed in response to this relatively new phenomenon, and major organisations are now reliant on computer forensics professionals to protect their sophisticated computing systems.About the Foundation Year The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Computer Forensics honours degree programme. Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).About the BSc (Hons) Computer Forensics Degree Using our state-of-the-art computing facilities, including a dedicated lab with FTK and EnCase software, and with teaching and staff support that have been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency, this course provides you with the technical, analytical and evaluative skills to be able to carry out computer crime investigations within organisations, law enforcement and national security.Our graduates enjoy excellent career prospects thanks to our extensive links with over 450 local and national organisations, such as Merseyside Police, Cheshire Police, EY, Experian, IBM, Eutechnyx and Intaforensics. Such links help ensure that students enjoy excellent work-related learning and paid placement opportunities throughout their degrees.
