If you choose to study for a Forensic and Analytical Science BSc(Hons) with us you’ll get the benefit of career-focused teaching and a course that combines forensic science with the complementary area of analytical science, so you can equip yourself with knowledge and skills in the largest area of employment for graduates with chemical science-related degrees. During the course, you’ll be able to focus not only on the theory that could set you up for a wide choice of careers, but also on gaining the practical skills that are so sought-after across a range of industries. You’ll get to grips with a wide spectrum of topics in lectures, problem-based tutorials, lab classes and purpose-built crime-scene facilities. We’ll also support you in getting experience of how things work in the real world of the profession through mock criminal court hearings and organised outdoor crime scenes. And if you’d like to extend your hands-on understanding, you can opt to complete a placement in Year 3. Whether you choose to take the three or four-year study route on the course, it’s accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences and you’ll be supported by academics and experienced practitioners in forensic science. Career prospects for graduates cover a broad range of fields from scene of crime officers (SOCO), forensic toxicologists and bloodstain pattern analysts to working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, hospitals or analytical service laboratories and beyond.
