Why did you choose to study your course at NTU?
I enjoyed Science at school and wanted to be able to make a difference with ongoing environmental issues, so Environmental Science at NTU was ideal.
What do you enjoy most about your course?
The range of subjects we study, which enables us to go into a variety of fields after university. I particularly like the mixture of lab work, fieldwork and software use that comes with the course.
How do you find your modules and what have you most enjoyed studying?
I really enjoy all our modules – particularly Sustainability, Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation, and Frontiers in Environmental Biogeochemistry; as they require you to have a holistic view of an issue and assess potential solutions.
What do you think about the facilities available on your course and what do you use the most?
I think the facilities are to a high standard. Personally, I use the software for GIS and ERDAS Imagine the most due to the Applications of Remote Sensing module on the course.
What do you think about Brackenhurst Campus? What do you get up to in your spare time?
Brackenhurst is a beautiful campus and it’s particularly nice for walks, especially if you need a change of scenery from city life.
What is your top tip for someone considering studying/ living at Brackenhurst Campus?
Get waterproof walking boots and a raincoat!
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?
I went on placement at Siemens Mobility as the Environment, Health, Safety and Quality Intern, which was a transformative experience. I developed communication, organisational and project management skills by getting involved in a wide range of projects, and also built a network of valuable connections.
Why would you recommend your course to someone considering studying it?
I think the course content is really useful and will allow you to make a decision on your future career by teaching you a wide range of environmental subjects.
What are your plans for after the course and how do you feel your course has/ will help you to achieve that goal?
I would like to do an Environmental Consultancy or Sustainability Advisor role, which I believe modules like Sustainability and Frontiers in Environmental Biogeochemistry have equipped me for with the skills they have taught.
