On this exciting four-year course, you’ll learn from experts in the Criminal Justice System and emergency services and get the chance to impress an employer during a placement year. Our Forensic and Digital investigation with Industrial Placement course will give you a solid grounding in both forensic science and digital forensics and during a placement year, you'll be able to put these skills into practice and showcase your skills to employers. Taught by industry experts with years of practical experience, you will gain a hands-on understanding of each discipline and how they combine to help solve real-life criminal investigations and as we are rated number 1 in London for student satisfaction, you won’t be disappointed in making this choice. A typical day could see you employing the latest digital technologies and programming languages alongside investigating specialist forensic techniques such as blood pattern analysis, homicide investigation or Disaster Victim Identification. This course offers a unique combination of modules merging traditional forensics with digital forensic techniques. Currently identified as two separate areas of specialism, introducing conventional forensic science principles into cyber forensics will address a glaring gap in the skills market. Given that digital evidence is often a key factor in many court cases, staying at the forefront of the discipline is an important issue for all forensic professionals. If you're excited by the prospect of entering the world of forensics and digital investigation, this four-year course is the ideal start for your professional future.
