Master’s – MSc Forensic Science

Our MSc Forensic Science is the longest-running course of its kind in the UK, celebrating its 50th anniversary a few years ago.

The course is popular amongst Canadian students; it is accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, meaning it is a recognised degree when you take it back to Canada. Some of our Canadian graduates have found work with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto, and in academia in Canadian universities, to name but a few.

What makes our course unique:

  • One-year Master’s
  • Choose to specialise in forensic biology or forensic chemistry in the second semester
  • Participate in a major practical crime scene and courtroom exercise (in front of a Sheriff in Glasgow Sheriff Court)
  • Research project, placement opportunities, and a dissertation in the 3rd semester
