Forensic Science & Molecular Biology (Foundation Entry)

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. As a forerunner in the country for forensic science, you’ll learn from former practicing forensic scientists and CSIs as well as academics who are leaders in their field. On this integrated masters course, you’ll get the level of training associated with a BSc degree but with integrated masters level modules, given you a depth of knowledge that will significantly improve your employability. You’ll study forensic investigation, forensic biology, forensic chemistry and forensic anthropology, ultimately specialising in forensic biology with an emphasis on the generation, interpretation and application of DNA evidence. Completion of the programmes will leave you well placed for specialist employment in areas of forensic sciences, crime scene investigation, molecular biology or biotechnology. 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. Our strong links with the local constabularies and hospital laboratories mean you’ll get the chance to undertake invaluable hands-on 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.
