What I would highlight: My university experience has been good so far. The university staff were happy to help me change course even though I was moving across faculties from Automotive Engineering to English and Creative Writing. And I was able to do this several weeks into my original course which meant I didn't have to make it through my first year on a course I didn't enjoy before being able to change courses. The university offers many small-scale events such as webinars, group sessions and one to one workshops on employability and workplace skills ranging from presentation skills to CV writing to effective job searching. They also run large scale events like employability fairs that are specific to faculties so each faculty gets a chance to promote relevant employers and invite them in to talk to students. The course allows us to have a high degree of creative freedom in some of our modules whilst still maintaining a stricter and more academic approach in others. This allows us to explore our ideas in our university work without sacrificing the academic side of the experience meaning that we will be well prepared no matter what we go on to do after completing our undergraduate degrees.

What I would highlight: I don't think there could be a better university for me. Coventry university is a diverse place full of people from all over the world. It provides opportunity to learn about other cultures and being everyone together. A sense of unity. Furthermore, it provides fantastic opportunities to better yourself in preparation for your career. Leadership and language programmes as well as many employability workshops. Also the lecturers are so passionate, encouraging, supportive and dedicated that it gives you the best possible chance of doing your absolute best. Our lecturers are very passionate about what they teach and many of them have working experience which provides insight into how we can apply our knowledge in a real job role. They go out of their way to find interesting and unique examples rather than easy general case studies. They are always available to meet and respond to email very quickly. Furthermore their coursework support is outstanding. They really want us to do our best on will put aside their own time to achieve this.

What I would highlight: My experience so far has been really good. I studied my foundation year in Loughborough and I must say, Coventry is so much more inviting. You really feel supported, and it's much more close knit. Coventry is very good at increasing employability. There are a lot of placement and job fairs, and the careers department are very useful. I recently had a meeting to talk about my placement interview and it was very useful. They also do not expect you to pay for your placement year, which is very handy as some universities will still expect your tuition fees.The lecturers are all very approachable and try to make the lectures as interesting as possible. They are always available to speak to you about anything you might need, and are willing to take time out of their own day to help. The facilities are excellent. I am in the new engineering building and it's amazing. They have everything you could possibly need, and it's very modern and clean. The support is amazing. We have something called a Theta room, where lecturers are obliged to go and sit for at least 3 hours a week to help anyone that goes along. We also have a maths support center where you can go along and ask anything to do with maths. On top of that, the lecturers are usually very quick to answer emails, and are happy to help.

What I would highlight: Coventry is a good place to study and I would recommend it to anyone. I like that lecturers and other members of staff can help us with anything and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in take part, for example societies, job fairs and even working at the university. As for the university’s facilities, I would say they are good, I always work good at the library and have had no problems at all with noises, space, and so on.

— Coventry University (@covcampus) February 9, 2015 OVERVIEW

This course runs in 2016/17.

Analytical chemistry and molecular science techniques are employed to solve crimes and are used in a diverse range of industries from pharmaceutical and environmental analysis to cosmetic manufacture.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

This course is designed to help you to understand how modern analytical techniques are applied in a wide range of industries such as pharmaceutical science, food analysis, and environmental monitoring, as well as their vital role in the prevention or investigation of crime.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • An extensive laboratory programme where you will gain hands-on experience in the use of key industrially recognised techniques, such as GCMS, HPLC, FT-IR, AAS and ICP-OES. This experience will provide you with the key laboratory skills that analytical chemistry and forensic employers require for graduate jobs;
  • links with external professional bodies like The Forensic Institute Research Network (FIRN) and law enforcement agencies;
  • experienced teaching staff who bring professional or research expertise into their teaching;
  • links with a large number of local schools, which offer work experience if you are interested in teaching;
  • links with a number of employers such as Veolia Environmental Services, Severn Trent Water and Chemtura, as well as Excilica, a chemistry company that was set up by Coventry University;
  • guest speakers in specific areas of analytical chemistry and forensic science, such as environmental disaster management and offender profiling, to ensure that material is up-to-date and as applied as possible;
  • an applied “Crime Scene to Court” approach which aids forensic understanding by simulating real investigations.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The emphasis throughout this course is on the application of the basic science to real-life situations. In your first year you will learn about fundamental principles within chemistry and forensic science. Subjects include: principles of molecular science, principles of analysis, chromatography, atomic spectrometry, molecular spectrometry, sample collection and preparation, forensic science, biochemistry, genetics, and biomedical analysis.

Laboratory work is a substantial component of the course, enabling you to learn a wide range of techniques in modern well-equipped laboratories and help you develop the key experimental, data-handling and reporting skills required for a career in science. We also ensure that students have a thorough grounding in law and statistics, which are considered vital elements to the modern forensic scientist.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

Our modules are based on lectures, with associated laboratory/practical classes, workshop activities and personal tutorials.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 15%; coursework, tests, essays 45%; practical or project work 25%; group work etc.5%; presentations, posters etc.10%.

A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.

TEACHING CONTACT HOURS

In a typical week you will have up to 18 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 6 hours of workshop/online tutorials (or, later, individual project supervision) each week

Medium group teaching: 6 hours of practical classes or skills workshops each week

Large group teaching: 6 hours of lectures each week

Personal study: 18 hours each week studying and revising in your own time.
