Every year, the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences invites accredited universities to put forward their highest performing student for the award. Stephanie becomes the first Nottingham Trent University student to receive the prestigious prize.

Stephanie was commended for her academic abilities, as well as her promotion of forensic science work at the University to the profession. She graduated with a first class honours degree in July, after attaining some of the highest marks ever achieved by a student on the BSc (Hons) Forensic Biology course.

Since completing her studies, Stephanie has been accepted as a volunteer with her local police force in Hillingdon, as she continues to pursue a career in forensic sciences.

Stephanie said: "I really enjoyed my four years studying forensic biology at Nottingham Trent University. It's an honour to be recognised by my course tutors and the Society."

David Butler, Course Leader for BSc (Hons) Forensic Science at Nottingham Trent University, said: "It is very pleasing to receive professional body recognition for the achievements of one our graduates. It is an award that reflects a combination of the hard work put in by Stephanie and the commitment to delivering high quality teaching by the staff who contribute to the delivery of the forensic degree courses."

Stephanie will be presented with her award at the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences' annual awards ceremony, which will be held on Friday, 7 November 2014, at the College Court Conference Centre, University of Leicester.
