We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degree in Forensic Science equip postgraduates with the skills to scientifically analyse remains and sites of crimes, for evaluation in a court of law.
Postgraduate specialisms in Forensics include Crime Scene Science, Forensic Biology and Forensic Toxicology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Criminology.
A Masters in Forensic Science advances your skills in the analysis of objects, remains and different areas to understand how crimes are committed and learn about the individuals involved in these crimes. From laboratory analysis to fieldwork and even court practice, you will gain a wealth of transferrable skills and knowledge.
Practical training includes techniques such as fingerprinting (both traditional and genetic), toxicology analysis of samples such as blood, and examining materials through ballistics and trace evidence. Other training may include photography and digital techniques such as 3D modelling.
It is possible to specialise your studies in areas such as biological or chemical criminalistics, which is ideal if you have a career route in mind. These may include first-hand investigation at crime scenes, analysis of evidence in laboratories, or other roles within police or local government departments.
