Course summary

Perhaps you’ve always wondered what it would be like to get involved in a real crime-scene investigation. Or maybe you’re intrigued by how science can be applied to support the legal system. On this course accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (https://www.rsc.org/Education/courses-and-careers/accredited-courses), you’ll get the chance to see chemistry in action and build a broad range of skills that’ll stand you in good stead for a science-sector career. * A key part of your time on the Chemistry with Forensic Science BSc(Hons) will be spent getting hands-on experience. We know employers are looking for graduates to hit the ground running when they start work, that’s why we’ve designed the course as much as possible around practical experiments. * In our modern labs, you’ll get to grips with a whole range of instruments with the aim of becoming skilled in chemical and forensic analysis. Techniques you could have the chance to try out include spot tests for blood, drugs and firearm residues, identifying glass and paint fragments and examining microscopic hairs and fibres. * Building on the solid foundations you’ll get from your Chemistry and Forensics modules, we’ll also give you the chance to spend a year in industry or research in Year 3. Not only is a placement year a golden opportunity to put your knowledge into practice, it could also help give that all important boost to your employability when you graduate. Professional links and accreditation: This course was last accredited in 2018 by the Royal Society of Chemistry (http://www.rsc.org/Education/courses-and-careers/accredited-courses) and for five years thereafter. This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.
