Our Forensic and Analytical Science with Industrial Experience MSci course offers you the opportunity to get a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of forensic science while developing in-depth knowledge of analytical science – the basis of forensic chemistry. Analytical science is also widely used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, hospitals and analytical service laboratories, so this course could help open up a whole range of career opportunities to you. Where this course differs from our BSc(Hons) is that in the third year of this MSci you’ll do a placement year in an industry setting. This focused time spent in an industrial laboratory could be the ideal option for you if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd on graduation. Inspired by their placements, previous graduates have gone on to careers in a whole range of analytical science-based fields including the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, hospitals and analytical service laboratories. As well as getting the chance to develop your practical and problem-solving skills while on placement, we’ve designed the course to be as hands-on as possible throughout. In our specialised labs and crime-scene facilities, you’ll be able to get to grips with the tools and processes used in real-life investigations and our simulated scenarios will challenge you to apply your know-how on the spot. Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by leading academics and experienced practitioners in forensic science and the course is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences.
