'I knew that Teesside University would be my best choice from the minute I visited the campus.'
'None of the other universities I applied to had an entire house for crime scene use and the labs at Teesside stood out a mile above the rest.'
'The studies were directly relevant to the world of crime scene investigation, as was the additional certificate that I studied for.'
'When choosing my degree, I discovered that Teesside had the best facilities for their courses in crime scene science.'
'I recommend Teesside University if you’re interested in forensic science. It’s hard work but I think it’s worth it.'
'I would absolutely recommend the Crime Scene Science course as the lecturers and facilities are second to none.'
'The teaching on my course was excellent and the number of visiting speakers and experts was impressive.'
'The scope for further research and understanding of DNA always keeps my interest – it’s one of the things I particularly like about my role.'
'The staff are so enthusiastic about their subject and are always willing to help if you have any questions.'
I enjoy different things about my course, but I think the most interesting thing is the projects that I do. My course is a really project based, which you don’t really get at other universities. We have 6-7 weeks of research to pick a topic then you have an intensive week where you work in a real company, doing real projects and working towards a deadline. It is difficult but it gives me the opportunity to go into these companies and prove I can do it.
I chose Teesside University because of the course modules offered throughout the three years of study.
I have enjoyed a broad and successful experience in worldwide operations for the Total Group, having held high-level executive positions in North and South America, Europe and Asia.
I also benefited from a summer placement with Jacobs Engineering, a big local engineering company.
I enjoy the variety of working in the office and offshore.
'The close collaboration between academia and industry is what attracted me to conduct research here.'
'I did many modules that helped prepare me - building technology, structural mechanics, geotechnology, civil engineering analysis and design, and water infrastructure.'
'My goal is to apply my project management knowledge to help promote more responsible business and government practices.;
'I wasn't particularly academic at school but here I am, achieving a first-class honours degree.'
My course has been an overall experience of academic, extracurricular and so many other things.
'The laboratory staff were the best – they supported me in every possible way. And Middlesbrough is an excellent choice, especially for an international student.'
'The New Product Development module set me up for the practical and the theoretical aspects of my career, and the tutors’ industry experience showed me what would be required of me in my job.'
‘My degree course was very well organised – I always knew who to talk to if I needed any further assistance. My tutors were very friendly and willing to help at any time.’
'After a tour of the University and facilities, and a warm reception from current students and lecturers, my heart was set on attending this university.'
My favourite module is Food Manufacturing and Processing.
'I really appreciated having so many opportunities at Teesside – there is lots of involvement with industry.'
'What you learn is not simply out of a text book or an intelligent brain, but also from personal invaluable experience.'
Teesside is good at getting you ready for a successful career within your specific field.
The course gave me experience of delivering presentations to a scientific audience, and the problem-solving skills that are essential to my current role
