"I think the overall strength of forensic science at UCL is the many connections that exist (and are needed) with other academic departments and organisations such as the Metropolitan Police."
"UCL is a prestigious university and the programme content was unlike any other Master's available, for example the CSI module with the Metropolitan Police. The Master's gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in both areas of crime and forensic science. Due to it often being applied to real-life scenarios in industry, I could demonstrate an awareness of forensics and the policing industry in interviews, despite having little experience in such jobs."
