Hi I’m Jamie and I’m currently in my second year of Forensic Science at ARU Cambridge.
In my first year I lived in Peter Taylor House and I loved that I was on campus and on the doorstep of the city centre. I love societies and sport and in my first year I started the Forensic Science Society.
After that I ran in the Students’ Union elections and became Activities Officer where I supported other societies to run events and grow! After that I was elected Students’ Union President and campaigned on things like student mental health and how we define excellent teaching. For both of these roles you’re required to take a gap year, so I’ve actually been at ARU for four years now!
Now I’m in my second year and I’m loving being a student again. I’m on the ARU Netball team and volunteer at Wood Green Animal Sanctuary.
ARU has supported me throughout my time here and I’ve gained so many additional skills from being part of the Students’ Union. Right now I’m excited to be studying my course which is really practical and has lots of laboratory time factored in. I’m currently preparing for my final year project, which I’ll be doing in collaboration with an external laboratory.
