Course summary

**Course overview**- Do you have a strong sense of justice and the ability to diffuse tension in stressful situations? The Policing and Criminal Investigation Foundation Entry Degree could be the course for you.- 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.- If you’re considering a career in policing or similar law enforcement agencies, this course covers topics including crime scene investigation, criminal law, more practical aspects of policing such as fraud, e-crime and homicide investigation, as well as ethical and political issues associated with policing.- You’ll learn relevant study skills and be introduced to criminal law, the English legal system, forensic science and the subject of policing and criminal investigation, as well as further investigation skills, criminalistics, contemporary policing issues and the law relating to property and weapons.**Why study with us**- CSI modules include fingerprint recovery and identification, crime scene photography, and recovery and analysis of trace evidence such as hairs, fibres and body fluids.- Our School has outstanding facilities including a new Hydra Minerva Suite, as well as three interconnected scenes of crime houses and a garage vehicle examination bay.- You’ll have a number of options for studying high-level crime investigation and ethics, and you’ll produce a dissertation on a relevant subject.**Further information**- 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.
