University of Derby
Our course has been designed to support you in proposing, developing, and conducting a research project. You will gain invaluable insight into how research is conducted, and have the opportunity to further explore your interests while utilising our specialist facilities, including our brand new Crime Scene House and crime scene cars. Our staff are research active and regularly present at scientific conferences and publish in peer-reviewed journals. Our expertise covers a diverse range of forensic science subjects and we support research which is either field or laboratory-based. You'll be encouraged to conduct a research project in an area of your choice, so you can further explore your own interests in the subject.
Students will need a good Honours degree (typically 2.2 or higher) in forensic science or a related discipline. If they have professional experience in forensic science, they may also be considered as eligible for this course. If they are selected for an interview, they will be asked to submit a 1 page proposal outlining the areas of interest for their potential research project. If English is not your 1st language, you will need to hold IELTS 7.0. All international students will have a Skype interview.
Students will be assessed through a variety of methods allowing them to show their individual strengths and abilities. These include essays, portfolios, a dissertation, blogs, presentations and a viva voce.
