    You could start by answering the part about experience of research i.e your undergrad dissertation.

    The rest is all about voluntary work in a forensic setting

    hope this helps

    I guess you can at least answer 1) with your undergraduate dissertation/research project
    3) by reading through the syllabus and saying what interests you and why
    4) What you are eager to get out of it, and how you are going to use it for future career/research/studies
    5) maybe put in some work experience that is mildly relevant or that has taught you "some" stuff.

    For 2), obviously if you have no experience there isn't much you can put. However, if you have secured an internship/job put it in. You could also put in some relevant talks/conferences you've attended, and ultimately some books youve read that are relevant.

    Hope it helps
