NCFS Programs

As partners in the National Centre for Forensic Studies, the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT), the University of Canberra (UC), and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) collaborate in the design, development and delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate courses leading to academic qualifications in forensic studies.

All our programs are developed with the guidance of a program reference group, comprising relevant academics and forensic practitioners. We consult closely with the forensic science industry to design courses that meet current and emerging industry needs.

Teaching staff on the NCFS-supported courses include former and current practitioners in the fields of forensic biology, forensic chemistry, law, toxicology, crime scene investigation, fingerprint examination, forensic computing, forensic photography; and through our extensive industry contacts we are able to access expertise in every conceivable area of forensic studies.

The National Centre for Forensic Studies can also develop, accredit and deliver specific forensic training for approved industry clients. Industry enquiries should be made directly to the Centre Director, James Robertson.
