A comprehensive study of chemistry is integrated with forensic specialisms, including DNA analysis, fire debris analysis or forensic toxicology, so students can develop an in-depth understanding of
forensic chemistry and fundamental science.
During the MChem Forensic Chemistry degree, students have the opportunity to develop the skills of a professional forensic chemist, including laboratory examination, report writing, crime scene analysis and courtroom presentation. With a broad spectrum of modules, it is possible to specialise in areas such as DNA analysis, fire debris analysis or nuclear forensics.
The School of Chemistry takes a research-centred approach to teaching and learning, and students have the chance to work with academics on collaborative research projects.
