Forensic science is a dynamic discipline that is crucial to the investigation of crime, the collection of evidence and intelligence, and in securing justice

Important Adjustment

Due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on teaching, the module 'SECU0055: Forensic Biology and DNA Interpretation' will not run in 2020/21. The launch of the module 'SECU0063: Digital Forensic Science and Technology' has been postponed and will not run in 2020/21. These are optional modules and these changes do not affect the structure of the programme. External module availability will be dependent on the teaching department.

Please be aware that certain modules will require pre-requisites such as relevant first degree, or specific A-level subjects. In addition, modules run by other departments may not be available every year due to timetable constraints.
