Overview

The content of the Forensic Toxicology programme at the University of Lincoln  is aligned to guidance from the United Kingdom and Ireland Association of Forensic Toxicologists on best practice in professional training and development in the field.

The specialist skills and technical knowledge that students can acquire may be transferable to roles in laboratory research, clinical drug monitoring, clinical chemistry, law enforcement, customs and excise, and investigatory agencies in the private sector.
