Course summary

If you choose to study for a Forensic and Analytical Science BSc(Hons) with us you’ll get the benefit of career-focused teaching on a course that combines forensic science with the complementary area of analytical science. * Whether you choose to take the three or four-year study route on the course, it’s accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (https://www.csofs.org/Accredited-course-search) and you’ll be supported by academics and experienced practitioners in forensic science and in analytical science. * You’ll be able to focus not only on the theory that could set you up for a wide choice of careers, but also on gaining the practical skills that are so sought-after across a range of industries. * You’ll get to grips with a wide spectrum of topics in lectures, problem-based tutorials, lab classes and purpose-built crime-scene facilities. * We’ll also support you in getting experience of how things work in the real world of the profession through mock criminal court hearings and organised outdoor crime scenes. And if you’d like to extend your hands-on understanding, you can opt to complete a placement in Year 3. * Career prospects for graduates cover a broad range of fields from scene of crime officers (SOCO), forensic toxicologists and bloodstain pattern analysts to working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, hospitals or analytical service laboratories and beyond. I chose to study the Forensic and Analytical Science BSc(Hons) course here at Huddersfield for the forensic science element of the course, as this covers the laboratory techniques used in the field of forensic science such as analysis of DNA, fingerprint and footwear analysis and examination of fibres. Plus, the course is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, and the University is a respectable one and close to home. ~ Miranda Blackburn, Forensic and Analytical Science BSc(Hons). Professional links and accreditation: This course was last accredited in Autumn 2018 by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (https://www.csofs.org/Accredited-course-search) and for six years thereafter. This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis. Additional costs: Optional short field trips eg. one day, are sometimes also arranged. Previous field trips have included the Wellcome Trust Forensic Exhibition and Bart’s Pathology Museum in London. The costs of these field trips must be covered by students and vary dependent on the trip. Previous trip costs have ranged from £10 to £100 per student but are dependent on location.
