Students using microscopes in a science lab

Facilities in Science

Carry out research and develop the skills you’ll need throughout your career in our cutting-edge laboratories and facilities. Our labs have recently undergone a multimillion pound refurbishment, so you can be sure the equipment you use parallels that found in specialist and professional labs.

You’ll also be using new digital technologies – mapping habitats using computer software or investigating crime scenes using virtual reality.

Discover how virtual reality is used to develop forensic skills.

Our crime scene simulation house is used by Forensic Science students. We work in partnership with local police forces to recreate crime scenes so students can get a taste of what they would encounter as a forensics professional.
