There are many routes into becoming a qualified forensic scientist within the UK. All forensic science providers have some form of ‘in-house training’ but prior to this there are a number of different academic paths a potential forensic scientist can take. These can be split into two major paths which can be described as the ‘older’ and ‘newer’ routes. Up until now neither of these routes was formally recognised as part of the Higher Education Academy. Brian Rankin, President of the Forensic Science Society said…“it is probably the diversity of subjects which make up forensic science that meant it is difficult to fit forensic science into the HEA”.
