94% of our BSc (Hons) Forensic Science students were satisfied with their course (National Student Satisfaction Survey 2017).
The survey covers all aspects of the undergraduate experience ranging from the quality of teaching, feedback from assessments and the opportunity to develop personal skills to boost future employment prospects.
Richard Price, course leader, said: "Our students recognise the importance of the course being accredited by The Chartered Society of Forensic Science, they enjoy the hands-on practical approach to studying this subject, the good laboratory practice that is helpful in providing employability experience, that the lectures are interesting and staff are available outside of lectures to support their learning, backed up with excellent University student support and IT.
Within the Forensic teaching team we have a combination of highly qualified academics as well as professional practitioners, some of whom are still involved in attending crime scenes and appearing in court, and the students really enjoy their experiences being incorporated into their studies.
While the course has been developed to ensure accreditation by the Chartered Society, it has been structured so as to provide the skills and knowledge from which to build any career involving the application of scientific methodologies and techniques. Additionally the course provides graduates with the qualities and competences required to meet the changing needs of future employers and ensure our students have the know-how to realise their career aspirations and fulfil their potential.
The quality of our graduates is evidenced from many gaining employment with highly respectable scientific companies even before they have started their final year examinations, so that many have almost progressed straight from studying into the world of work."
