Our Journey

The origin of the European Forensic Institute brings us back to 2011, when experts in the fields of criminology, investigation, insurance and security decided to join forces to establish a working group. The purpose is to create a professional hub in the field of forensic investigations, based on the corporate philosophy of major US law firms and businesses which operate in this field. The project team dedicated itself to provide a wide variety of consultancy services to cover the needs of the courts, police forces, lawyers, insurance companies and businesses, ensuring efficient services thanks to operational offices spread throughout Italy and Europe.


Five years later, at the beginning of 2016, experts within the working group founded ISF College Corporate University in Milan, aiming to transfer its know-how to future operatives of the Institute and to deliver innovative training and professional courses to experts in the field. At the same time, the Corporate University also teaches students with High School Diploma or with Undergraduate Degree who wish to work in the fields of criminology, investigation, judiciary or forensic science. Beginning in Italy, the very first post-diploma and post-degree advance training courses which, in less than two years, made ISF College Corporate University a point of reference for training in the field of forensic sciences.


The European Forensic Institute was founded in 2018 from experiences gained in education and supported by the success of ISF College Corporate University in Italy. The directors of “Istituto di Scienze Forensi” are convinced that it was time to take a step further and to transfer the knowledge to an international level. Malta was chosen to undertake this new academic experience for a specific reason. In fact, Malta is a country with thousands of years of history where since ancient times and for many reasons, different cultures and traditions, from north Europe to Middle East, have met and have mixed together creating a truly unique society. Moreover, this island represents one of the most important pivots in the Mediterranean in fields such as IT and is one of the most reliable business centers in the world. Malta, finally, is one of the few European countries that is both part of the European Union and the British Commonwealth. In other words, Malta is the most suitable place for higher education, especially in the field of forensic sciences, for students who wish to study on at international level.
