    GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY FORENSIC SCIENCE AND CRIMINOLOGY STUDENT REVIEW

    I originally was going to study nursing but a friend mentioned forensic science and I knew that was what I should study. I find crime and why people commit crime incredibly interesting and wanted to move states for university so Griffith was my top choice as it was close to Brisbane city and is known for their science programs. After deciding to do forensic science I chose to do the double degree simply because it was only an extra year to get two degrees. I know love both the forensic side and the criminology side of my degree. I applied for 4 different universities but only 2 offered forensic science and I was offered a guaranteed place in forensic science at Griffith as my ATAR score was significantly higher than needed to enter the degree which was another added bonus in me choosing to go to Griffith.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I love the courses, however, during your first year, you have to complete a lot of core classes that seemed to have little relevance to my major. I did not enjoy those subjects are found them somewhat difficult to complete.
