For 9 years it has successfully run the world’s only MSc degree programme in FSS and has a cohort of PhD students working in the area. The CPD courses are taught by Departmental staff in conjunction with speech and audio experts from JP French Associates, the UK’s longest-established and leading independent provider of forensic speech and audio services to law enforcement, prosecution and defence agencies. The firm has a record of casework unrivalled in the UK, having been involved in over 5000 cases internationally since the mid-1980s.
