About

The Forensic Toxicology programme at the University of Glasgow is designed to provide students with an in-depth working knowledge of the principles and practice of forensic toxicology. The major strength of this programme is that students study within an operational ISO 17025 accredited forensic toxicology laboratory and are taught by practising forensic toxicologists.

This programme will be of particular interest to those interested in pursuing or furthering careers in forensic toxicology as court-reporting scientists, laboratory scientists or academics. This programme also enables graduates to gain experience in research before applying to a doctoral programme.

Why this programme
  • We are the longest established forensic toxicology MSc in the UK, and the only programme in the UK delivered by practising forensic toxicologists in an operational ISO 17025 accredited laboratory.
  • Our staff are regularly called to court to give evidence as expert witnesses. You will have the opportunity to visit a Scottish court in session and develop skills as an expert witness though lectures and practical sessions, including a moot court exercise.
  • Students can learn first-hand within a unit with one of the largest forensic toxicology laboratories. No other Universities offering a taught Forensic Toxicology degree 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.
  • Students are introduced to ISO17025 accreditation and Quality Management Systems.
