More about Beth

“I chose to study at Brackenhurst after attending the open day. Nowhere else felt right after seeing how unique this campus was and what it had to offer. The location made it ideal for geography fieldwork.

“The Geography (Physical) course offers many different modules to suit individual interests. There are opportunities for fieldtrips including a week in Spain. This was a great way to learn new skills. The overall course incorporates many different skills such as data collection, statistical analysis and writing, making it a very varied course which enhances your future employment opportunities.

“For me, it is hard to pick one element of the course that I have enjoyed the most. There are so many varied modules, fieldtrips and opportunities. This course is perfect for individuals who want to have the opportunity to gain lots of new experiences whilst gaining a versatile degree.

“The course tutors are also very supportive. They can help with individual issues or provide general guidance during group sessions.

“Brackenhurst campus is very relaxed and friendly. Everyone knows everyone with it being so small, making this campus so unique. It has great facilities and friendly staff. It is in a great location giving you the chance to live in Nottingham city or on Brackenhurst in the countryside. The campus offers a variety of clubs and societies, including one for geography. This involves group nights out with the course.

“Doing my Geography (Physical) degree at Brackenhurst has given me many opportunities to make myself more employable. I have taken part in fieldwork in Italy as part of dissertation research with a PhD student, where I got the chance to learn new data collection techniques which I can apply to future jobs and studies. In the future, I hope to continue to travel while studying physical geography to develop my knowledge.”
