This Forensic Science (Hons) course at London Metropolitan University will prepare you to meet the growing demand for analytical expertise as you learn to tackle the problems encountered in forensic science. You’ll gain a solid foundation in general subjects that underpin forensic science including chemistry, molecular and cell biology, and genetics.
You'll carry out a range of biological, chemical and criminalistic procedures in a safe, competent and reliable way, and get the chance to put your skills to the test with hands-on laboratory sessions taught in our £30 million Science Centre. You’ll find yourself interpreting blood patterns, processing crime scenes, identifying firearms and tracing evidence.
Where this course can take you
After the course you'll be equipped to pursue a career in forensic science and closely related work in pharmaceutical analysis, consumer product analysis or hospital laboratories. You'll also develop analytical, numerical and communication skills, which are in demand in other careers such as accountancy, journalism, marketing and teaching.
This course is also an excellent preparation for further research or study, with previous students having gone on to work in academia.
