More about Harriet

I wanted to do this course after I left school. It’s a really nice college to be at with lovely people and good facilities.

I’m studying land and wildlife management, it includes both practical (estate skills) and theory. The modules I enjoy the most are ecology and aquatic ecosystems. It is brilliant, as long as you are actually interested in wildlife conservation and management. The course gives you excellent practical skills and can open up opportunities for what comes next.

As part of my work experience, I have completed hours on campus and I have a week of work experience at the animal unit.

I met my course tutors at the open day when I went to the course talk. They are very helpful and kind.

Brackenhurst is really good because there are lots of places to go on campus, including the dining hall and the library. It only took a few days to settle in because we had all met before when I had been on campus on the open day.

I want to carry on at university at Nottingham Trent University (not sure on the course yet), and volunteer abroad. I have learnt a lot of theory and practical skills.

If I had to describe my time at Brackenhurst in three words, I’d say fantastic, interesting and fun!
