Whilst we do not pretend that you will be able to step into a forensic scientist's job on completion of this course – you would need to undertake a practical qualification to do that – we do provide you with invaluable insights into this complex world which will stand you in good stead should you wish to take that further step into a vocational, hands-on course or pursue it at a more academic level.

At UK Open Learning we pride ourselves on our friendly and supportive tutors. Your tutor support will start as soon as you receive your course and will be valid for 12 months. All our tutors are highly qualified with extensive experience in supporting distance learning students. You contact your tutor via email and they are responsible for marking assignments answering your questions and guiding you through the course to ensure you are ready for your examinations.

Obviously, an interest in crime, the causes of crime and solving crime would be an advantage, as would the desire to gain a fuller understanding of the workings of the human body as it affects forensic science. However, with this being a Level Three course, a reasonable level of literacy to GCSE A-C would be desirable.

We recommended you spend approximately 110 hours of your time studying for this course. The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 2 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but if you could spare 4 hours a week you could complete it in six months.

Unit 1 - Introduction to Forensics. Unit 2 - The Crime Scene. Unit 3 - The Criminal Case. Unit 4 - Future of Forensics. Unit 5 - Cases.

There is no exam although you will be required to complete a series of assignments which you will send to your tutor when completed for marking and feedback. There are also regular Self-assessment Activities for you to monitor your own progress and understanding.

NCFE is recognised as an awarding body by the qualification regulators ('regulators') for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
