Technological advances in crime detection require highly trained forensic scientists. We aim to meet this need by giving you a thorough grounding in forensic science, incorporating biological and chemical sciences, and the process of criminal investigation.We are ranked 1st for Forensic Science in London, 21st in the whole of the UK (The Complete University Guide 2019) and achieved 100% of overall student satisfaction (NSS 2019). In addition, all of our 2017/2018 graduates found employment or went into further study within six months of graduating. We have received educational accreditation for both of our degrees from the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences. We have achieved this by combining cutting-edge facilities with an innovative range of learning methods, including:• Simulated case-work activities;• Crime scene practical situations;• Extensive laboratory work;• Blood pattern interpretation studies; • Court presentation scenarios.We are proud of our crime scene room facilities allowing authentic crime scenarios, including blood pattern analysis, which are an important part of learning Forensic Science at UWL. These have been created so you can apply theoretical knowledge and evidence-gathering techniques within a practical crime scene context.In addition we offer a range of scientific analytical equipment – including gas chromatography as well as Raman spectroscope and specialised lighting equipment for forensic examination of trace evidence (CrimeLites) which mirror the technology used in industry and forensic science research. Our course will provide you with a good grounding in forensic techniques to be able to specialise in your chosen area of forensic science and provide you with key skills to support you in a new venture. You will learn transferable skills that can be used not only in Forensic Science but in many other career pathways, including scientific, legal and business.You will get the chance to spend time working within industry in your final year. This is a valuable opportunity, making you more attractive to potential employers, who often look for candidates with prior experience. Some students have been offered employment as a result of the experience.We pride ourselves on our personal approach. We understand that the transition to degree level can be life changing and we want to support you in every way we can. Every new student will be assigned a personal tutor, who will be able to provide dedicated support throughout your time at the university. In addition, we have an annual Forensic Science Student conference – drawing on the expertise of people in industry and forensic research. This is a good opportunity to make personal contact with potential employers.Please also join us on our social media accounts for regular up-to-date news and inspiration in the field of Forensic Science:TWITTER: @CSIUWLFACEBOOK: “Forensic Science at UWL”
There might be a part-time course available for this subject, we are waiting for data from our partner UCAS.
