About

The Forensic Science (with Foundation Year) programme at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) was designed with input from professional forensic scientists to give you a deep understanding of the way science is used to investigate crime. 

Overview

With a strong emphasis on problem-solving and communicating scientific findings, you'll study everything from crime scene investigation and laboratory analysis, to interpreting, evaluating and presenting evidence.

Learn to use forensic instruments in our industry-standard laboratories and apply your scientific knowledge at simulated crime scenes in our specially-adapted Crime Scene House.

Careers / Further study 

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.
