More about Belinda
“From a young age I have always been interested in animals, so when I came to an open day at NTU Brackenhurst and saw the variety of animals that the campus had to offer I was very interested. The tutors were very friendly and welcoming.
“I really enjoyed the module on anatomy and physiology and breeding and reproduction as I have been interested in them for a long time. I was really glad that I was able to develop my knowledge in these areas.
“This course is great for learning about animals, their environment and their biology. It has been a great way to find like-minded people, as well as being given the opportunity to travel the world with a variety of trips available. I will be taking this opportunity myself when I head to Madagascar to do research in the field.
“Outside of my studies I also belong to the Brackenhurst women’s football team and I am also on the committee. It is a great team to belong to, and we are all very close which is very important when being part of a team. I have certainly made friends for life by being on the team.
“When I graduate I would like to go into the animal industry hopefully helping with conservation, breeding and genetics. I feel like I would be able to transfer some of the things I have learnt to other jobs due to the biology aspect of the course.”
