Overview

Throughout the  Forensic Science (with Foundation Year) (Hons)  BSc programme from University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) forensic scientists apply scientific analysis to criminal and civil investigations, producing evidence that's admissible in a court of law.

It's a fascinating and rigorous scientific discipline that will build your knowledge of biology and chemistry, as well as your advanced problem-solving, data interpretation and communication skills.

Covering crime scenes, laboratory and courtroom work, forensic science offers a springboard into rewarding careers in the justice system and beyond.   

Career opportunities:

  • Forensic science graduates go into varied types of laboratory work, and a significant number become science teachers.
  • The scientific problem solving, numerical and communication skills you'll gain will also put you in a strong position for working in other sectors, from financial services to law. 
  • Graduates of the Forensic Science (with Foundation Year) (Hons) at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) have gone onto work with some of the country's largest forensic science providers, including LGC Forensics, Orchid Cellmark and Key Forensics, as well as in a range of roles with the Police.
  • Many graduates choose to continue studying, at MSc or PhD level, and others decide to take their study of law further and complete a one-year law conversion course to become a barrister.
