More about Leah

Leah Barnett-Treverrow, MRes Equine Performance, Health and Welfare

"I would really like to pursue a career in research in the future and I feel that this course is an excellent way to follow this career path. I completed my undergraduate degree at Brackenhurst so I also know the facilities and lecturers well, so studying at NTU has made me feel like I can achieve my full potential. The lecturers at NTU are fantastic, they are incredibly supportive and really encourage you to explore your interests."

"I completed the BSc (Hons) Equine Sports Science course at NTU before doing my master’s. It was a lot of fun and really helped me to find out what I was interested in, particularly research into the physiology of the equine respiratory system and respiratory disease. It really ignited my passion for research."

"My course tutors are really friendly and approachable which means that we have a great support network. Many of our tutors are involved in their own ongoing projects and are always up to date with current changes in research so we are really lucky to have them as our tutors."

"The postgraduate community at NTU is vibrant and diverse. I have met so many wonderful people through our regular 'Coffee O’Clock' meetings online which gives us a chance to get to know people from outside of our own course. Joining a postgraduate course can be a little intimidating and so its comforting to know that there are many people around you that are all working towards the same goal."

"I am aiming to do a PhD once I have completed my master’s, as doing this course has been beneficial in helping me realise where my strengths lie and has also helped me to decide the career path I would like to take! I love what I’m doing at the moment and if I can turn that into my career then that is the ultimate goal. There are so many skills that we’ve learnt on this course that would be excellent for the transfer to other careers such as project planning, data handling and time management."

"This course is perfect for someone who enjoys all aspects of research. Taking the MRes pathway means that you can really tailor your course to suit you. I have thoroughly enjoyed planning my research project so if this is something you’re interested in then absolutely go for it! Of course, it requires a lot of hard work and self-discipline, especially as it is a much more independent way of learning, but these are all skills that create brilliant scientists."
