Course summary

**Course Overview**- The Forensic Science & Criminal Investigation Foundation Entry Degree is a solid, widely respected route into the highly competitive field of forensic science and criminal investigation.- 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 directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.- 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. Our strategic alliance with Lancashire Constabulary - the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy (LFSA) - offers a wealth of opportunity for gaining vital experience and practical work placements in real-world operational environments.- You’ll choose either crime scene investigation or forensic anthropology and follow that stream throughout your study. You’ll learn all aspects of the law relating to forensic science, how to recognise, enhance and recover all evidence types from crime scenes, and how to analyse that evidence in the laboratory.**Why study with us**- Our course is mapped against National Occupational Standards for CSIs so you could even start work in the field while you’re studying.- Guest speakers are brought in to talk about other areas including law, ballistics and DNA, and alumni will talk to you about their career path and how to get on.- Learn from forensic practitioners who’ve worked at the highest level and from academics involved in the cutting-edge research underpinning and advancing forensic analysis.**Further Information** - This course offers an optional 48-week sandwich placement in industry between the third and fourth years.- Placement years are an invaluable opportunity to help consolidate your first two years learning, gain experience, and radically enhance your employability.- Experience gained during a study placement often improves final year performance and gives you an advantage when competing for graduate jobs. We support you in preparation for this via the University Careers Team, who can help you plan and develop your CV and applications, and hold practice interviews.
