Forensic Science

The course is heavily biased towards analytical science in the broad sense since such skills appear to be those most in demand from both the specialist forensic science industry and the wider science/technology-based market. The course permits students to develop a range of analytical skills focused on and with particular relevance to the needs of forensic science; students develop these skills in an explicitly forensic environment; a good grounding in the design and implementation of a programme of research are obtained.

Entry requirements

Applicants require a good Honours degree, or equivalent, in forensic science, or a related science subject, or other cognate or acceptable subject; applications from experienced practitioners lacking a formal degree qualification will also be considered. If English is not the 1st language students should demonstrate a certificated level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 (academic level) or equivalent English language qualification, as recognised by Anglia Ruskin University.

Course modules

Core modules: Evidence collection and management; mastering forensic evidence; mastering forensic analysis; specialist topics; research methods; research project.

Assessment methods

This is mostly a combination of laboratory and court reports (including witness statements), oral presentations and closed examinations; some essay and report writing is required; the research project is by submission of a dissertation and oral presentation.
