This summer, UNL Forensic Science students spent three weeks studying forensic science at Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow, Scotland.
The students studied forensically-related topics including:
- The legal and criminal justice system of Scotland
- The work of a crime scene officer in Scotland
- Fingerprint, firearm, and footwear examination
The UNL Forensic Science undergrads that traveled to Scotland included: Alex Fernholz (Senior), Sydney Stansbury (Senior), and Hiyam Hesso (Sophomore).
The program included several academic and cultural field trips related to the Scottish forensic science field. The academic trips included visits to: Glasgow Sheriff Court, Glasgow Police Museum, High Court of Justiciary, Glasgow City Chambers, Her Majesty’s Prison Cornton Vale, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue, and Glasgow Scientific Services.
The cultural field trips included: The Highlands, Loch Ness, Stirling Castle, The Kelpies, The Falkirk Wheel, The Burrell Collection, and Glengoyne Distillery.
We are excited to have our students participating in topical forensically-related study abroad programs. For more information about studying at Glasgow, click here.
