Introduction

This three year full-time degree has been specially designed to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to work effectively in the area of forensic chemistry or other careers in the chemical sciences. Students will gain expertise in all the major branches of chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical and especially analytical) and forensic science, which includes legal topics focusing on how science is communicated in court. The analytical science aspect of the course has been broadened from a more traditional chemistry focus to include DNA analysis as this is of such importance in forensic science.

In the final year all students carry out a research project which will play a major role in developing practical and communication skills.

If you successfully complete the first or second year, and leave the course , either through choice or necessity, you may be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education in Forensic Chemistry or a Diploma of Higher Education in Forensic Chemistry respectively.

Careers

This course is an excellent preparation for careers in forensic chemistry although competition for such posts is extremely high. Graduates would also be very well equipped for careers in chemistry, especially those requiring analytical chemistry skills. Furthermore, graduates in chemical sciences rate highly in employers estimations because such individuals tend to be numerate, computer literate and proficient at problem solving. Such skills are broadly applicable and marketable within and beyond the chemical sciences.
