What will I learn?

The Foundation Year provides an opportunity to build up your academic writing skills and numeracy, and will also cover a range of subject specific content to fully prepare you for entry to an Undergraduate degree. This is an integrated four-year degree, with the foundation year as a key part of the course. You will need to successfully complete the Foundation Year to progress on to the first year of your bachelor’s degree. During your Foundation Year you will get the opportunity to talk to tutors about your degree study and future career aspirations, and receive guidance on the most appropriate Undergraduate course to help you achieve this; providing you meet the entry requirements and pass the Foundation Year.

Technical advances have made the role of the forensic scientist increasingly important in crime investigation, but also in other areas including archaeology. This course offers a unique mix of science and psychology, involving practical laboratory work and experience in crime scene processing using our Crime Scene Room, as well as lectures. An introduction to sciences and psychology is followed by more detailed applied forensics, including the role of the forensic scientist at the crime scene and preparation of evidence for court. The underpinning science behind forensics will also be taught including pathology, physiology and haematology and how they relate to forensic biology. You will also study recent advances in DNA analysis, toxicology, psychology, as well as fire and explosive analysis.
