We pride ourselves on creating forensic scientists who are experts in their area. We’re a forerunner in the country for forensic science and you’ll learn from former practicing forensic scientists and CSIs as well as academics who are leaders in their field. Our course is unique thanks to the accreditation with the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences and we were the first university to have a suite of dedicated crime scene houses. You’ll gain education and training in forensic investigation; the management and processing of crime scenes, law for forensic scientists and the laboratory-based analysis of evidence, leaving you well placed for specialist employment in areas of forensics, chemistry or biotechnology.

For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
