    Study Forensic Science Degrees

    Forensic science is a field that is most commonly related to the solving of crimes, and is often depicted as this in popular culture. However, the discipline is far more complex and interesting than that. It deals with biology, physics, psychology and chemistry.

    As a forensic scientist working with a police force, you will be expected to examine a crime scene, collect any evidence and process that evidence for any useful information, such as fingerprints and hair follicles. This evidence can be used to solve a crime and identify a suspect, as well as being utilised in any legal proceedings that may follow.

    An undergraduate degree in forensic science will give you a foundation of knowledge in the area. You will be given opportunities to develop your understanding of chemistry and biological science, DNA analysis and interpretation, and forensic evidence. Your degree might also provide chances to practice your crime scene investigation and practical skills, ensuring that you are well prepared for your future career.

    Your course will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical and laboratory sessions. You might be required to take part in a placement module, which will give you an experience of working as a forensic scientist.
