I loved the campus when I visited an open day and the lecturers seemed friendly and knowledgeable. The student ambassadors did a great job at explaining all the services that are available to students and they really appealed to me.

The best thing was how much it reflected the workplace. At Teesside I was conducting experiments that I would later be doing in my job after I graduated. I got on well with my course mates and I liked that we shared lessons with people studying biology as it allowed us to listen to people with different ideas and viewpoints.
I enjoyed the Forensic Medicine module in my third year. It was eye opening learning about injuries and post mortems, especially as we could visit a morgue to watch an actual post mortem being conducted.
I went to the Students’ Union quite a lot during my time at Teesside, there are always fun and interesting events going on. I joined the pole fitness club and went on to become chair of the club in my final year. You can make some great friends by joining clubs and societies.
Yes, I am currently a forensic scientist working for Eurofins Forensic Services which is my dream job. It can be difficult to find a job and I would not have done it without having gone to Teesside.
