I went to an open day before applying, I met my lecturers and the campus looked amazing, so it was a very easy choice to come here.

More about Indy

Tell us more about your course. What do you enjoy studying the most?

I enjoy the ecology and habitat modules the most, plus the practical sessions are always very enjoyable and satisfying.

Why did you choose to study your course at Brackenhurst?

I live a short 30-minute drive from Brackenhurst, so it was the ideal option. I had also heard from friends who had been to Brackenhurst and had really enjoyed it. So, I went to an open day 3 years before applying, I met my lecturers and the campus looked amazing, so it was a very easy choice to come here.

What do you think about the facilities available on your course and what do you use the most?

I spend a lot of time in the library when I have spare time to work. I love the layout and the PC’s and books are really useful. The vending machine is a welcome feature as well.

What do you think about Brackenhurst Campus? What do you get up to in your spare time? 

The Orangery is a really nice place to get a hot drink and relax. But often on long breaks we go on a walk down to the Dumble and look for the campus Kingfishers.

What is your top tip for someone considering studying at Brackenhurst Campus?

I would recommend overalls and some good quality steel toe-cap boots for the practical sessions. There is a very good bus service which goes via the campus which I recommend.

Have you been involved in any placements, work experience or volunteering as part of your course? If so, what did you do and what did you achieve? 

For my course work placement, I continued with a volunteer placement I already had which was volunteering with the RSPB, which is always the highlight of my week, I love it so much. We manage Sherwood Forest making it better for wildlife and people.

Why would you recommend your course to someone considering studying it?

The field trips in year 2 are very fun, we’ve taken many trips to Longshaw Estate, to Big More to see Red Deer pre-copulatory behaviour which was interesting. The lecturers are extremely supportive and genuinely care about you. Plus, the whole course content is really board so it will cover some, if not all your interests. The campus is a really relaxing open place to be and you forget you are on a college campus sometimes!

What are your plans for after the course and how do you feel your course has/ will help you to achieve that goal?

After the course I would like to go onto to university but straight into industry after that. This course has prepared me for what working in industry will be like.
