More about our modern teaching environment

There is a wide range of facilities for practical work at our Penrhyn Road campus, where this course is based.

You will have access to a modern environment with the latest equipment, including our 'scene of crime house' where we recreate crime scenes. This allows you to put your forensic skills to the test, from dusting for fingerprints to searching for and analysing samples (read more below).

You will also benefit from:

  • the £9.8 million Eadweard Muybridge building with state-of the art laboratories;
  • new work areas and dedicated laboratories for research;
  • specialist equipment, such as:
    • chromatography instruments;
    • a breathalyser;
    • electrophoresis equipment;
    • electron microscopes;
    • electrochemical analysis;
    • nuclear science equipment;
    • thermal analysis;
    • x-ray diffractometers; and
  • a range of spectrometers, including mass spectrometers, infrared spectrometers and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers;
  • computing laboratories and a team of IT technicians to offer assistance.

The Learning Resource Centre offers:

  • subject libraries, plus a free inter-library loan scheme to other libraries in the Greater London area;
  • online database subscriptions; and
  • a growing selection of resource materials.

The 'scene of crime house'

The 'scene of crime house' is a real semi-detached house located on-site. Its five rooms contain various types of mock crime scenes, including burglary, arson, assault and sexual crime.

Students have to pick up evidence carefully and transport it back to the labs for preservation and analysis. Even the garden contains evidence and is used by the forensic team's archaeologist for teaching.

Dedicated graduate facilities

In addition, you can use the dedicated Graduate Centre on campus. This includes:

  • additional IT facilities;
  • seminar rooms;
  • social spaces and a canteen; and
  • a learning resource centre with specialist libraries.
