Forensic Sciences Abertay University


Forensic Science is the application of scientific knowledge and techniques in support of the legal process. Thanks to advances in technology and an increased reliance on forensic techniques by police, this exciting but competitive industry is growing every day. You will be taught by forensic science practitioners who have come directly from industry. Re-enact and analyse crime scenes in our purpose-built crime scene house and high street bank. We can help you secure a summer internship or even a 12-month paid placement at a laboratory. Forensic science graduates are highly employable, both in the specialist arena of forensic investigation and in other areas requiring an enquiring, scientific and legal mind. Upon graduating, you are eligible to apply for associate membership to the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (ACSFS).

You will also have the opportunity to study for one further year and graduate with an MSci in Forensic and Analytical Science - the only programme of its kind in Scotland. You'll graduate with a Masters level qualification and the prerequisites for Registered Scientist recognition by the Science Council.
