Course summary

BSc(Hons) Forensic Science is accredited by The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences. It was designed with input from professional forensic scientists to give you a deep understanding of the way science is used to investigate crime. With a strong emphasis on problem-solving and communicating scientific findings, you’ll learn about everything from crime scene investigation and laboratory analysis, to interpreting, evaluating and presenting evidence. You’ll study foundation year modules with students from other biological, biomedical and environmental science courses so you can switch to another course if your interests change. Explore forensic instruments in our industry-standard laboratories. Apply your scientific knowledge at simulated crime scenes in our specially-adapted Crime Scene House. Present evidence and respond to questions in our mock courtroom. Guest lectures from inspirational professionals will give you insights into specialist topics – and you can tailor the degree to suit your specific interests. You’ll be encouraged to do summer internships and placements, and you can apply to spend a year studying abroad. The knowledge and skills you’ll gain will open up lots of career paths. You could work with forensic science providers or the Police, or as a laboratory analyst. Many students do postgraduate study, particularly in toxicology, forensic anthropology, osteology and archaeology. Your analytical approach to problem-solving will be just as valued in other sectors, like teaching or the legal profession.
