About this program

Forensic Science BSc (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Skilled forensic scientists are able to form an unbiased, technical understanding of any crime scene and defend their findings in court. On this fascinating degree course, you'll develop your analytical skills through problem solving exercises and hands-on lab work. You'll examine applications of bio-analysis in the modern world, such as poison and drug analysis, fingerprints and DNA profiling.

This degree will prepare you to meet the growing demand for analytical expertise as you learn to tackle the problems encountered in forensic science. You’ll gain a solid foundation in general subjects that underpin forensic science including chemistry, molecular and cell biology, and genetics.

You'll carry out a range of biological, chemical and criminalistic procedures in a safe, competent and reliable way, and get the chance to put your skills to the test with hands-on laboratory sessions taught in our £30 million Science Centre. You’ll find yourself interpreting blood patterns, processing crime scenes, identifying firearms and tracing evidence.

Your normal lectures will be supported by guest lectures led by specialist practitioners from a variety of forensic science disciplines. Not only will you gain valuable insight into today’s industry, you’ll also have the opportunity to network with potential employers, colleagues and mentors.
