Course summary

Our Forensic and Analytical Science with Industrial Experience 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. Analytical science is also widely used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, hospitals and analytical service laboratories, so this course could help open up a whole range of career opportunities to you. * Throughout the course, which is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (https://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 this MSci you’ll do a placement year in an industry setting. This focused time spent in an industrial laboratory could be the ideal option for you if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd on graduation. * Inspired by their placements, previous graduates have gone on to careers in a whole range of analytical science-based fields including the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, hospitals and analytical service laboratories. * As well as getting the chance to develop your practical and problem-solving skills while on placement, we’ve designed the course to be as hands-on as possible throughout. * 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.
