Yee Ting Mak – BSc (Hons) Environmental Science – HKIVE

"Studying in Plymouth was worthwhile and an unforgettable experience.  

I chose to study environmental science because I think environmental protection is becoming increasingly popular and I want to promote the importance of environmental protection to the public. I chose to study at Plymouth as it has an agreement with my previous school in Hong Kong (HKIVE) whereby I could transfer into the final year of the course.  

When studying environmental science, you need to be aware of the latest environmental news; a lot of professors from different areas were invited to share their views during our lessons. After the course, I had a comprehensive understanding about environmental protection from different points of view.

It wasn't hard to adjust culturally to living in the UK because the people in Plymouth are really nice and friendly and they help you to overcome any problems about the culture."
