    Just started this for people who are going to study forensic science in sept/oct 2012 and have any questions

    I've applied for forensic science combined with criminology, but i'm beginning to think that i should have applied for forensic science and investigative analysis :s

    Does anybody know about the courses and what jobs they could lead to? Any advice would be appreciated!

    I did Forensic Science at Staffordshire Uni, didn't finish the course but it was really good nonetheless. Main job areas include Scene of Crime Officers, Pathology, Toxicology, Anthropology and so on, as well as general lab work.

    Don't think I'm going to meet my firm offer so considering doing either Criminology with Forensic Science or Forensic Psychology at local universities which have lower entry requirements.

    I have received a conditional offer from uclan for forensic science and anthropology. I haven't decided yet. Do you think it's better to do a biology undergraduate for a career as a forensic anthropologist?
