Forensic Science (Foundation Entry) - University of Central Lancashire

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. We pride ourselves on creating forensic scientists who are experts in their area. We’re a forerunner in the country for forensic science and you’ll learn from former practicing forensic scientists and CSIs as well as academics who are leaders in their field. Our course is unique thanks to the 3-star accreditation with the Forensic Science Society and we were the first university to have a suite of dedicated crime scene houses. You’ll gain education and training in forensic investigation; the management and processing of crime scenes, law for forensic scientists and the laboratory-based analysis of evidence, leaving you well placed for specialist employment in areas of forensics, chemistry or biotechnology. There are several opportunities to get experience either in the voluntary sector or through placements at a number of laboratories and workplaces. If you are interested in a police career, we encourage you to join the Special Constable service. Those thinking of a laboratory career may wish to explore links with local hospital laboratories for work experience and within the School there are several student internships available each year that will allow you to get involved in a novel research project and gain experience of working within a research environment. Archaeologists within the School of Forensic & Investigative Sciences regularly run digs and those with an interest in Archaeology and Anthropology may want to participate and get additional field-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.
