Course outline

Forensic science is an intellectually stimulating study, full of challenges and trials to overcome. If you already have a HND or foundation degree in the subject, you'll already be aware of how fulfilling forensic studies can be. So why not top up to an honours degree and take your training even further? You'll be fully qualified to go into a rewarding career in forensics.

We cover the analytical knowledge and skills required by forensic scientists and crime scene investigators. You'll look at the importance of chemistry and DNA-based technologies to modern investigation, the legal framework behind such activities and the need for the proper collection, analysis, presentation and quality assurance of forensic evidence. We'll help improve your existing skills to the next level and get you ready to enter the professional world of forensic science!
