Course Details

According to the Society of Toxicology, toxicology is the study of the adverse effects of chemical, physical or biological agents on people, animals, and the environment. Toxicologists, therefore, are scientists trained to investigate, interpret, and communicate the nature of those effects.

Forensic toxicology involves the study of toxins - poisons, drugs, and other substances that have a life-threatening effect on a living being. A forensic toxicologist knows the rates of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of drugs and chemicals along with a variety of other features about the nature of the interaction of toxins with the human body. Forensic toxicologists may perform tests on human or animal tissue samples and body fluids in order to determine whether or not a toxin is present. As well as possessing specialist scientific knowledge, forensic toxicologists are required to have strong communication and interpersonal skills (written and oral), IT skills, time management skills and the ability to work as part of a team.

This three-year, ab initio level 7 degree programme provides an integrated, coordinated and comprehensive education in forensic toxicology. It will equip you to work in a wide range of sectors such as pharmachemical and healthcare companies, contract research and testing, chemical companies, government agencies, health services (among others).
