Events and Activities

Due to the current pandemic, we are working on exciting online activities, with physical ones taking place again once possible. Throughout the year, we will be offering a variety of events including:

  • Practical training workshops using forensic science equipment (fingerprints, DNA, interviewing witnesses, and more)
  • Talks given by actual CSI agents and other professionals, providing an insight on forensic science in the real world.
  • Social Events including pub nights, Winter Wonderland, and more
  • Collaborations with other societies (such as Criminology and Psychology) to target the wider scope of forensic science and clear common misconceptions
  • Special off-campus activities including room escapes, Jack the Ripper tour, the Sherlock Holmes Museum
  • Fictitious "Murder Investigation", where you will apply your workshop investigation skills to solve the murder mystery

**Please keep in mind that some of the events may not take place due to the restrictions
