Forensic Science and Anthropology

We pride ourselves on creating forensic scientists who are experts in their area. We’re a forerunner in the country for forensic science and you’ll learn from former practicing forensic scientists and CSIs as well as academics who are leaders in their field. Our course has 2-star accreditation with the Forensic Science Society. On top of a broad education in forensic investigation, managing and processing crime scenes and analysing evidence in the laboratory, you’ll focus on the recovery of human remains and the analysis of skeletal remains. Our archaeologists regularly run digs that you’re welcome to take part in, and our strong links with the local constabularies and hospital laboratories mean you’ll get the chance for hands-on work experience. Our courses are an excellent basis for employment in this competitive sector. Our graduates are at work in all sorts of forensic science settings - as crime scene investigators, police officers, scientific support personnel and intelligence analysts, at home and overseas. There are several opportunities to get experience either in the voluntary sector or through placements at a number of laboratories and workplaces. If you are interested in a police career, you are encouraged to join the Special Constable service. Those thinking of a laboratory career may wish to explore links with local hospital laboratories for work experience and within the School there are several student internships available each year that will allow you to get involved in a novel research project and gain experience of working within a research environment. Archaeologists within the School of Forensic and Applied Sciences regularly run digs and those with an interest in archaeology and anthropology may want to participate and get additional field-work experience.
