Nicholas Lockyer - BSc Forensic Anthropology

"My experience of working alongside researchers and Forensic Anthropologists was invaluable and it gave me the confidence to contribute to projects within my new department."

"I remember the feeling of excitement when I looked through the huge lists of university courses during my final year of school.  There were so many that appealed to me, yet it was a degree in Forensic Anthropology that stood out as being the best way to develop my interests in anatomy and human biology.  I wanted to learn how to solve the mysteries that were hidden in bones!

"When I went to Dundee for my interview, I was very impressed by the aura of the department and the Forensic Anthropology lab. I instantly knew that this was where I wanted to study.  There are many reasons why I loved my time at the University of Dundee, but one of the main reasons was how inspiring it was to be a part of this centre of excellence. 

"The BSc in Forensic Anthropology provided me with educational opportunities that were literally unique.  At CAHID, students and practitioners work closely together and there is a level of exposure to the real life applications of Forensic Anthropology that is unrivalled."

"I graduated from Dundee with experience in conducting original research, and as a published author.  I spent six months as a demonstrator for the course and I also helped students in the years below me. I went on to join Lothian and Borders Police and this allowed me to broaden my experience, whilst maintaining a proximity to the fields of forensics and the law.  Having completed my training for the Police, I made a return to academic study and I am now studying for an MPhil in Biological Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. 

"The knowledge of anatomy and osteology that I gained at CAHID stood me in good stead for my career goals after university. More importantly, my experience of working alongside researchers and Forensic Anthropologists was invaluable and gave me the confidence to contribute to projects within my new department."
