Whatever you choose to study at Staffordshire University you will have the opportunity of a work-placement, where you’ll gain experience and connections to give you an edge in your future career.
This work experience may link to your course, or it could be in a broader field. Alongside your studies, it will give you the best possible mix of knowledge and practical understanding.
On our undergraduate and postgraduate courses you can opt to take a placement year. You’re also be able to collaborate on research projects with organisations in the criminal justice system. These include police forces, forensic nurses, professional bodies, forensic investigation units and laboratories.
Subject-related opportunities to enhance your experience and skillset are also available. For example you could join our FaCS Student Society, learn more about forensic archaeology on a dedicated module, undertake a placement with Staffordshire or Derbyshire Police Forensic Units, or apply for an international exchange experience in the Netherlands.
