The programme will cover a wide range of specialist topics under the umbrella of the forensic medical sciences, coupled with the opportunity to carry out research in a specialist area. You will study forensic pathology and will visit mortuaries to observe autopsies, attend court hearings, gaining knowledge of how injuries are interpreted and how cases are prepared for court.
