Why Glasgow?

* We are the only taught programme in the UK focusing on the subject of forensic toxicology.

* We are the only programme in the UK delivered by practitioners in forensic toxicology.

* Students can learn first-hand within a unit with one of the largest forensic toxicology laboratories. No other Universities offering a taught MSc have an associated laboratory.
* Research and teaching laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment rivalling many forensic toxicology service laboratories in the UK
* The laboratories are accredited to ISO/IEC17025 standard with UKAS. They are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and you will have access to a variety of instruments including GC/MS, GC-HS, HPLC, LC/MS and AAS.
* Direct link with our doctoral research programme.
* Our staff are regularly called to present evidence to courts throughout the UK as expert witnesses and you will have the opportunity to visit Scottish courts in session and to develop presentation skills in a moot court exercise.
* Students are introduced to ISO17025 accreditation and Quality Management Systems.
* Students will have the opportunity to attend lectures for the Diploma in Forensic Medical Sciences and the Scottish Medico-Legal Society. This grants you exposure to experts from a wide range of forensic and legal disciplines including scientists, lawyers and procurators fiscal.

Career Prospects

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.
