Being a doctor of forensic science isn’t a bed of roses—working amidst much tension and in adverse conditions and situations is what vaguely defines the job. And, if you’re sure to be able to withstand all of these—then go ahead and jump into this promising career!  Here we have got for you some of the best institutions in India where you can join right after 10+2 for a flourishing career in Forensic Sciences

5) Osmania University, Hyderabad

Osmania University, Hyderabad

One of the most famous universities in India, Osmania University offers Bachelors Degree in Forensic Science as well as Masters Degree in Forensic Science. Both these courses fall under their regular courses, the entry to which is strictly on merit basis. For getting through to this course, the minimum eligibility criterion is 10+2 pass with pure science. Being a state funded university, the fees to the course is also much lesser than its private counterparts.

Among the large variety of courses that this institution has to offer, the courses of Forensic Science are regarded as one of the best. The Bachelors degree in Forensic Sciences (honors) is offered at their main campus in Noida as well as their campuses in Manesar, Gurgaon and in Dubai. The minimum qualification required to sit for their entrance test is a 50% marks in 10+2 with Pure Science (PCM or PCB combination) in the same. However, since the institution is solely a private one, its charges are a bit on the steeper size—for a non sponsored candidate, the course fee per year would come to Rs. 0.44 lacs per year while for a sponsored candidate, it would rise to Rs. 0.66 lacs per annum; however, the institute claims a 100% placement assurance to all its candidates.

3) Gujarat Forensic Sciences University

With “knowledge, wisdom and fulfillment” as their motto, they can easily be termed as one of the foremost Forensic Sciences institutions in India. However, getting into this institution post 10+2 isn’t possible since they offer only Post Graduate courses or PG diploma courses and PhD courses. Since this university is dedicated to forensic sciences only—you’ll get a range of allied courses and specialization to choose from. For example, apart from the basic forensic sciences degree, you’ll also get a course on digital forensics, homeland security and anti terrorism and so on. The course fee is on a higher side, varying between Rs. 35,000 to 1 lac per semester for different degree courses, and Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 60,000 per semester for different PG diploma courses. The admission is generally based on entrance tests and a bachelor’s degree in technology or medical science or any other allied subjects is mandatory for the same.

The M.Sc in Forensic Sciences is a full time course of two years, the minimum eligibility criterion for which is a bachelor’s degree in subjects related to medicine or technology.
