Crime and Forensic Science MSc
Forensic science is a dynamic discipline that is crucial to the investigation of crime, the collection of evidence and intelligence, and in securing justice. This new multi-disciplinary MSc programme offers students a unique opportunity to gain forensic science skills and methods within a holistic crime science framework.
Entry and application
Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Relevant disciplines will generally include science subjects, for example chemistry, biology, physics, engineering or computer science; psychology, archaeology or geography. Alternatively candidates may qualify for entry if they can offer five or more years of relevant professional experience (for example in the police service, or with a forensic science provider).
For overseas equivalencies see the relevant country page.

Who can apply?
The programme is suitable for students from a range of different disciplines, as mentioned above, who wish to develop the skills necessary for a career or further doctoral research in this field.
