Program Description

As a forensic scientist you'll provide evidence for use in courts of law to support criminal and civil investigations. You need training in the latest analytical techniques and processes, and a sound knowledge of the UK legal system to do this. All of that’s on offer at ARU.

While studying BSc (Hons) Forensic Science in Cambridge, you’ll learn how to package evidence correctly and perform preliminary tests for body fluids and drugs of abuse. You’ll also examine ‘real’ forensic samples including ignitable liquid residues, and trace evidence such as paint and fibres.
