If your attention to detail is unmatched you could be destined for life in investigation. This degree will get you there. Forensic investigation is an exciting and challenging area of study, which involves not only an understanding of scientific methods of forensic analysis, but also investigative techniques, including the interpretation and presentation of analytical evidence to explain or solve criminal or civil cases. Officially recognised by Skills for Justice for the quality of our teaching, our degree is concerned primarily with the identification, collation and reporting of evidence to a forensic hearing. Our comprehensive curriculum covers investigative skills, the law, interviewing techniques, forensic science, investigation management, the legal process of enquiry, crime scene analysis, fraud investigation, digital forensics, surveillance and the evaluation of evidence. We run a range of interesting fieldtrips, which have previously included visits to the mortuary at the Coventry University Hospital and Specialist Group International, a world-renowned company which provides 24/7 specialist response to police, fire and other government agencies and boasts an arsenal of cutting-edge equipment. These industry visits contribute to our high levels of student satisfaction – 93% overall and 98% for teaching in the latest National Student Survey (NSS) 2016.
Here at Coventry we place students at the heart of everything we do. We know you want excellent teaching and plenty of it; a great student experience; and a career at the end which makes your investment of money and time worthwhile. You will be among the first to use the new 35 million students' building called TheHub, the centre of student and social life on campus.
