The Gujarat Forensic Sciences University is the world’s first and only University dedicated to Forensic and allied Sciences. It was established by the Government of Gujarat through an act passed by the Gujarat Legislative Assembly dated 30th September, 2008 with an objective of fulfilling the acute shortage against increasing demand of forensic experts in the country and around the world. The University is recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC) as a State University under section 22 of UGC Act, 1956. It is located in the green and clean city of Gandhinagar which is the capital city of Gujarat state, a vibrant, industrious, safe and business friendly state of Indian sub-continent.

The Institute of Behavioural Science (IBS) is the section of Gujarat Forensic Sciences University (GFSU) representing the academic programs in Forensic, Clinical and Neuro psychology, with special reference to neuropsychological and psychosocial genesis of criminal behaviour in individuals. Students are trained in investigative neurocognitive methods, and various psychological methods for changing/controlling behavioural responses that may be labelled offensive behaviour by the society. IBS focuses on broad areas like: Social Sciences, Neurosciences, Neural-Decision Sciences, Psychological Sciences, Social-Communication Sciences, Cognitive Sciences, Psychobiology, Management Sciences, Operational Research, Social Psychology, Forensics, Criminal Behaviours, Normality, Abnormality and other related domains of behavioural constructs.
