You’ll study foundation year modules with students from other biological, biomedical and environmental science courses so you can switch to another course if your interests change.Explore forensic instruments in our industry-standard laboratories. Apply your scientific knowledge at simulated crime scenes in our specially-adapted Crime Scene House. Present evidence and respond to questions in our mock courtroom.Guest lectures from inspirational professionals will give you insights into specialist topics – and you can tailor the degree to suit your specific interests. You’ll be encouraged to do summer internships and placements, and you can apply to spend a year studying abroad.The knowledge and skills you’ll gain will open up lots of career paths. You could work with forensic science providers or the Police, or as a laboratory analyst. Many students do postgraduate study, particularly in toxicology, forensic anthropology, osteology and archaeology.
