Course is rather difficult and it seems as if the teachers are not interested in helping you. They tell you one thing but expect you to do another read more

this course is very good much better than i thought it is engaging and interesting, the staff are all very helpful and try to help with inquiries to the best of their ability. the content is nearly always interesting, but thats to preference. it is not perfect no course is, there is some issues with the photography module in the first year however that is due to changes in the assessment submissions also it is not particularly relevant to forensic students unless they choose to go to the CSI/SOCO route which is more relvant to the CIS students. the first year cross over with CIS can proove hindering at times as the courses differ on scientific content so somtimes the forensic students learn information twice like in the first year chemistry module and the physical criminalistics module, which the courses share but overall a very good course read more
