It’s designed to give you an extra edge in the competitive job market by enhancing the knowledge and skills that are part of our BSc (Hons) Forensic Sciences programme. You’ll deep-dive into core forensic science subjects, further supported by the study of law and embedded statistics.
The MSci course content goes beyond day-to-day competence in the laboratory - you’ll learn advanced, research-led theory and put this into practice through professional placements, research projects and laboratory work in our state-of-the-art laboratories and bespoke crime-house facilities on campus.
On completion of the MSci programme, you’ll be a well-rounded graduate with a strong track record of professional and personal development. You’ll have the option to pursue a range of roles, such as forensic scientist (either as part of the civil service or the private sector), analytical scientist in industry, further study, or other science and managerial roles that utilise your transferrable skills.
You’ll graduate with a Masters level qualification and the prerequisites for Registered Scientist recognition by the Science Council.
Classed as an ‘integrated undergraduate Master of Science programme’, this year of study is eligible for SAAS funding (subject to individual student circumstances).
Graduates can go into careers such as forensic scientists, either as part of the civil service or the private sector, and related areas such as scenes of crime investigation or police officer. A number of our graduates have successfully obtained these highly competitive jobs.
