Course summary

Our Forensic and Analytical Science MSci course offers you the opportunity to get a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of forensic science while developing in-depth knowledge of analytical science – the basis of forensic chemistry. * Throughout the course, which is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, (http://www.forensic-science-society.org.uk/Accredited-course-search) you’ll be supported by academics and experienced practitioners in forensic science and in analytical science. * Where this course differs from our BSc(Hons) is that in the third year of the MSci you get to experience a placement year in an academic research setting. This focused time spent in a university or research institute could be the perfect opportunity for you to put theory to the test in the real world. It could also help boost your employability and open up all sorts of career opportunities beyond graduation. * The range of roles in forensic science is vast – from forensic pathologists, forensic examiners and DNA analysts to specialists such as forensic anthropologists, bloodstain pattern and clothing damage analysts. * No matter what career path you’ve set your sights on, this course is designed to help you develop practical and problem-solving skills you need.* In our specialised labs and crime-scene facilities, you’ll be able to get to grips with the tools and processes used in real-life investigations and our simulated scenarios will challenge you to apply your know-how on the spot. Professional links and accreditation: This course was last accredited in Autumn 2018 by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (http://www.forensic-science-society.org.uk/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.
