This is a 4 year degree course. Please ensure that when you apply for this course you choose Point of entry 1 in your UCAS Hub. A wholly original and invigorating course, Forensic Science with Policing develops the scientific and critical thinking skills of its students, producing graduates able to use these traits to assist the police and legal professions. These positions are likely better served by this unique programme – making use of real-life simulations, the knowledge of visiting practitioners and partnerships with police and forensic science services – than by single subject study, the benefits of which you will be able to demonstrate through key, transferrable skills. The Foundation Year will be used for orientation to life and study at the University of Wolverhampton, while later placement opportunities may be used to increase your employability post-graduation. Embodying the uniqueness of the course’s combined focus on Forensic Science with Policing, a breadth of subjects related to either primary topic can be studied. Not only will this approach grant you a level of knowledge likely advantageous in forensics and policing fields over students studying either topic singularly, but it will also develop transferrable skills valued by many companies even outside these fields. Successful graduates have branching avenues of employment opened for them; critically, roles of laboratory scientists and various police positions befit the mix of skills taught across this programme. Graduates may also seek out science-based teacher training or further education at MSc or PhD level.
