You will also have the opportunity to discover the benefits of studying at a university closely aligned with industry and commerce and tour of some of our facilities.

There are common elements to the Forensic MSc Programme and the Digital Forensics MSc and this is reflected by a joint Open Day with many common components (such as registration). There are some specific elements that will differ, our staff and students will guide you throughout the day.

Six short presentations from each MSc will provide you with a flavour of what is on offer here at Cranfield Forensic Institute. We will also cover the process for admissions including funding and accommodation.

Those attending the Digital Forensics MSc will have the opportunity to take part in a taster session.

The Open Day will be held at Cranfield University at Shrivenham, a secure site, in Wiltshire, UK.

Please register your interest as numbers are limited for the Open Day in order for you to experience the Open Day on an individual basis and to meet the staff and some of the current students on the course.

We look forward to meeting you at the event.
