Considering the whole forensic process, from crime scene to court, this course will enable you to develop your skills in scientific and critical thinking, as well as independent study. You will also gain skills to record, recover, examine, and analyse evidence, to interpret the meaning of your findings and then communicate those findings and the underpinning science so that they are understandable to a range of audiences.
In addition, if you choose to undertake a sandwich placement, you will develop your technical skills in the workplace and integrate knowledge gained in the theoretical aspects of the course into the professional environment.
