Diploma in Forensic Human Identification (DipFHID)


The next DipFHID Examination is on Friday 13 October. The application period opens around eight weeks before the exam date.

Please note that the DipFHID examination is a stand-alone exam and that success in the course below is the main eligibility criterion to be met before a candidate can apply for it.

Success in both the exam and in the dissertation enables candidates to use the DipFHID postnominal. Information about how to submit dissertations can be found here.

If candidates cannot submit their dissertations within six months after the chosen titles have been published, they will need to wait until the next titles are available, in the following year. However, if the delay was caused by exceptional circumstances, a deadline extension may be agreed.

Unsuccessful dissertation candidates must submit a brand-new dissertation.
