London Metropolitan University
The foundation year will equip you with the fundamental knowledge of scientific disciplines including biochemistry, chemistry and biology. We’ll help you develop your study and transferable skills in time management, writing and mathematics, enabling you to start the subsequent years of your study with confidence. There will also be an introduction to the laboratory environment, as well as to the simple biological and biochemical procedures relevant to any science degree.
You’ll share your foundation year with students completing Year 0 from other disciplines, which will allow you to share your ideas and meet people with different academic interests.
During the subsequent three years, you’ll be joined by students from the standard three-year course and study a wide range of challenging and engaging subjects including anatomy, physiology, criminalistics, DNA technology, biochemical toxicology and forensic interference from biological remains. To learn more about the content of your final three years of study, visit the Forensic Science BSc (Hons) page.
