I aim to apply the environmental expertise I gained on my courses in a UK career

One of my college lecturers... said the University is known for its world-leading research and could grow my potential further. I knew this would offer me a valuable introduction to the practical and professional side of natural conservation, giving me a clear understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of environmental study.
