Entry Requirements

  • Students who have graduated with a minimum of a lower second class honours degree from a course accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Science (CSFS) in the three relevant component standards (Interpretation, Evaluation and Presentation of Evidence, Crime Scene Investigation and Laboratory Analysis) may apply for direct entry to the course.
  • The course has been specifically designed for graduates from Forensic Science courses accredited by the CSFS (in CSI, Lab analysis and IEFE) and such graduates (with a minimum of a 2:2 classification) can be accepted directly onto the course. 


Core modules:

  • Advanced Crime Scene Science - A study of complex crime scenes using UWE Bristol's very own Crime Scene House and vehicle examination area. You can also examine a crime scene following a simulated arson incident.
  • Forensic Biology and Genetics - Considering a wide range of types of biological evidence with an emphasis on DNA profiling, including advanced topics such as the interpretation of mixed profiles.
  • Forensic Analysis and Toxicology - A study of advanced issues in analytical science that relate to the main chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques with a particular focus on sampling and sample preparation, and interpretation of results. This is especially important in the field of Forensic Toxicology, which features prominently in this module.
  • Research Methods and Practical Skills - Preparation for planning and carrying out your research project, including statistical analysis techniques.
  • Research Project - An independent laboratory-based project in an area linked to the core areas of the taught course.

Students who complete all taught modules successfully, but do not undertake the research project, achieve a Postgraduate Diploma.
