Forensic Science with Foundation Year

Technological advances in crime detection require highly trained forensic scientists. We aim to meet this need by giving you a thorough grounding in forensic science, incorporating biological and chemical sciences, and the process of criminal investigation. We are the best University in London for Forensic Science (Complete University Guide 2017), and rank in the top 25 for this subject in the whole of the UK. We've achieved this by combining cutting-edge facilities with an innovative range of learning methods, including: • simulated case-work activities • crime scene practical situations • laboratory work • court presentation scenarios. We're proud of our newly refurbished crime scene rooms, which are an exciting part of learning Forensic Science at UWL. These have been created so you can apply theoretical knowledge and evidence-gathering techniques within a practical crime scene context. You will spend time working within the industry in your final year. This is a valuable opportunity, making you more attractive to potential employers, who often look for candidates with prior experience. You will learn transferable skills that can be used not only in Forensic Science but in many other career pathways, including scientific, legal, and business. You may also wish to undertake postgraduate study to specialise in a subject you've already studied, or to explore something new.
