I'm currently applying through clearing, I am stuck between two choices. I have the entry requirements for both, but both are vastly different courses.
I'm stuck between forensic computing and security, and forensic investigation.
I've always had an interest in both, but unsure which to pursue now, and I'm running out of time.
I don't know what I want to do after uni yet, so don't want to make a huge mistake. On one hand the forensic computing course covers some things that Im not too familiar with, I don't want to start and drop out. The majority of coursework is apparently done on practicals and assessment, with only one written assignment in the first year. It is a 4 year course because of a mandatory placement. This course has over 400 hours of lesson or assessment time.
On the other hand we have the forensic investigation, which does cover a unit of forensic computing and a lot of science, which I'm fairly switched on with. This course has less than 300 hours, giving me more time to work alongside it.
Both can lead to great careers, both would open doors for me, but it's time I made my mind up and I'm not sure.
Anyone in a similar situation or been in one? How did you decide between two very different routes?
