The B.S. in Forensic and Analytical Science (Hons) at University of Huddersfield offers students the opportunity to get the benefit of career-focused teaching on a course that combines forensic science with the complementary area of analytical science.


About the Forensic and Analytical Science (Hons) program offered by University of Huddersfield 

The course is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, and the University is a respectable one and close to home.

You’ll be able to focus not only on the theory that could set you up for a wide choice of careers, but also on gaining the practical skills that are so sought-after across a range of industries.

You’ll get to grips with a wide spectrum of topics in lectures, problem-based tutorials, lab classes and purpose-built crime-scene facilities.

In the third year of this course, you’ll get the chance to step out of the classroom and into the real world on an optional placement year working for an organisation related to your areas of interest. This is when you’ll really be able to see your knowledge in action, pick up invaluable skills for your future career and boost your employability to help you hit the ground running after graduation.

You could stay to do your placement in the UK or experience a new culture and work abroad for one year. Where could this year take you?

Previous students in the Forensic Science subject area have undertaken placements with Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS), West Yorkshire Analytical Services and University of Huddersfield.


As a graduate of this course, you may consider a career in crime scene investigation, forensic pathology, toxicology, clothing damage analysis, bloodstain pattern analysis, forensic technology or forensic anthropology or forensic podiatry, as well as roles in chemistry and analytical chemistry within sectors such as pharmaceuticals, food and drink manufacturers or health.

Previous graduates from courses in this subject area of Forensic Science have gone on to work in roles such as Analytical Scientist at Minerva Scientific Ltd, Offshore Chemist at Benchmark Animal Health, Scientist at Broughton Nicotine Services and Analytical Scientist at RB (Reckitt Benckiser).
