"Studying this course over the past couple of years has given me valuable insight on the subject that I had previously overlooked. The importance of all the ‘underdog’ species was brought out in The Principles of Environmental Science and Biodiversity Conservation modules in my first year. The ability to go out into the field and apply newfound knowledge has also been an important learning curve that has better prepared me for working in the environmental industry."

"I was able to complete a Summer placement abroad in the United States during the break between my second and final year. Completing an internship at the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory was an experience of a lifetime. The highlight of my placement in Florida was being able to handle and explore such exquisite species that are not often talked about."

"My three months at GSML were filled with challenging tasks that really boosted my passion in the biodiversity conservation and further helped me to pinpoint what I would like to do in the future."
