This course will equip you with the ability to evaluate and interpret different forms of forensic evidence and to consider its relevance to police investigations.
You will also acquire an understanding of the many and varied techniques used to forensically examine different evidence types and how to sequence multiple techniques. The breadth of modules will enable you to acquire this skill and knowledge in a wide range of disciplines. Such skill and knowledge is an essential part of being able to demonstrate to a court of law that you are credible as an expert witness and able, therefore, to give opinion to a jury.
We will offer guidance in skills evaluation at the outset of the programme, which may help when considering whether a specialist route is right for you. You will receive further guidance as you enter your dissertation.
