This course is aimed at those within the biological and analytical sciences but also provides understanding and knowledge of key concepts in relevant law, professional skills, crime scenes and forensic sciences. You will be able to pursue this specialist area of expertise from forensic investigation to the court room.

Forensic investigation facilities

You will have the opportunity to participate in many indoor and outdoor practical exercises in purpose-designed facilities under the tuition of experienced staff. You will use our Crime Scene Training Facility, which includes two bedrooms, one with an ensuite, a lounge-kitchen-diner, a bank and a drugs lab where you can carry out full-scale simulated crime scene investigations.

Career opportunities

During recent years there has been significant expansion in the recruitment for suitably trained and experienced forensic practitioners. Government policy is directed towards encouraging the delivery of forensic services by a wide number of service providers in order to increase competition and introduce competitive pricing. The outcome will be a requirement for an increasing amount of forensic work to be undertaken by a range of commercial organisations and also for more work to be undertaken with the Police Forces servicing the UK. There is also an increasing requirement for the provision of forensic services abroad.
