Forensic Investigation

Would you like to enter the fascinating field of forensic science but don’t have a traditional science background? Our Forensic Investigation course allows students without a science background, or those with a specific interest in this field, to acquire knowledge relating to the use of forensic techniques in a wide range of criminal investigations. These include areas such as sport and competition, consumer protection and authenticity, wildlife crime, and various forms of terrorism. As part of your Forensic Investigation training, you’ll gain practical skills in volume crime scene examination, analysis of forensic evidence, and courtroom simulations. You’ll also learn about the structure and processes that regulate the criminal justice system, and the law associated with criminal investigation. You’ll undertake simulated investigations in our multi-room Crime Scene House, ranging from domestic burglaries and vehicle examinations to more complex scenes such as arson and homicide. You’ll study several cases and learn about the forensic techniques used to solve the crime, and be able to critically appraise and evaluate forensic approaches.
