About Forensic Investigation (Including Foundation Year), BSc (Hons) - at University of South Wales

Our Forensic Investigation degree allows students without a traditional science background, or those with a specific interest in this field, to acquire knowledge relating to the use of forensic techniques in a wide range of criminal investigations.

The Foundation course is for students who don't meet the entry for the BSc (Hons) Forensic Investigation degree. You'll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well-structured support, allowing you to develop your scientific skills and knowledge. Once you have completed, you will start the first year of the Forensic Investigation degree.

Investigations could include drugs testing, consumer protection and authenticity, DNA analysis in food testing, wildlife crime and toxicological investigations linked to chemical and biological terrorism.

You'll gain practical skills in crime scene and courtroom simulations, as well as analysis of forensic evidence. The degree will also teach you about the structure and processes that regulate the criminal justice system, and the law associated with criminal investigation.
