The major strength of this programme is that students will be studying within a working environment of one of the leading ISO/IEC 17025 accredited forensic toxicology laboratories worldwide. This programme provides much needed training in the field of forensic toxicology. The UK Home Office Forensic Science Regulator has identified a shortage of suitably qualified forensic toxicologists in the UK. In addition, this programme will enable graduates to gain experience in research before subsequent application to a doctoral degree programme.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
You should have an Honours degree in chemistry, biochemistry, forensic science or other suitable chemical science. Applicants with appropriate skills and experience in the field of forensic toxicology will also be considered.
You are required to provide two references and full degree transcript plus a personal statement indicating why you wish to study this programme at the University of Glasgow.
