Accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, you will study a unique approach to Forensic Science encompassing, not only the criminal aspects of the profession but also the wider remit of science and justice in both the public and private sectors.

 Designed by industry professionals, you will develop the skills and knowledge highly-valued amongst employers, including the ability to confidently investigate crimes, conduct independent laboratory analysis, process and analyse evidence and prepare statements for court proceedings. You won't just learn the theory, you'll be doing it in a hands-on session, including investigating complex crime scenes at our mock crime house, through working alongside serving professionals at our award-winning major incident event and applying practical laboratory skills to solving both criminal and commercial investigations in our state-of-the-art laboratories.
