Teaching and CPD
At the University of Leicester we recognise the need to develop strong academic programmes that will develop individuals and be of benefit to their employers. Drawing on skills and expertise from many departments, we have developed a range of postgraduate programmes aimed at those wishing to progress within a law enforcement environment.
In addition, the University is able to offer a range of bespoke, tailored packages that can address a particular concern or development need within an organisation. Recognising the need for specific areas of development, the University can offer individual modules from courses as part of continuing professional development (CPD) for an individual.
The Alec Jeffreys Forensic Science Institute can provide you with advice and guidance to ensure that both you and your staff receive the best possible development in all areas of forensic science and criminal justice studies.
Recent areas of teaching innovation include:
- An international MSc in Forensic Science and Criminal Justice, delivered by distance learning
- Improving police awareness of ‘legal highs’ and their classification within the UK Misuse of Drugs Act.
This work has received international recognition and has provided law enforcement agencies across the world with new and improved methods of developing their staff.
Introduction to Forensic Archaeology is just one of the many fascinating modules that you can study whilst on the Forensic Science and Criminal Justice MSc at the University of Leicester.
