Forensic science, or forensics, is all about analysing evidence from crime scenes and other places to help develop theories and aid police investigations. Studying forensic science at uni will introduce you to modern industry technologies, equipment and techniques, giving you the basis to work in the industry. Degree programmes usually combine science with elements of the law to give students the theory and practical experience needed to learn how to interpret evidence and crime scenes. When armed with a forensic science degree, potential careers open up in organisations working in law enforcement, customs, immigration, academic research, and more. Specific job roles that graduates can go into include lab technician, analytical assistant, microscopist, intelligence processing assistant and toxicologist. There’s also plenty of opportunity for further study.
