What were your first impressions of the University and highlights?
The first day of the course was very relaxed, you get to know your fellow students, have tours around the campus and meet a few of your lecturers. The highlight of my time at Warwick was having the opportunity to undertake a three month placement at the Canal and River Trust. This provided me with invaluable industry experience that has significantly benefited my CV. The time that I spent at the Trust allowed me to communicate with multiple organisations whilst working on ecological management plans, and provided me with contacts that are helpful to offer opportunities of future employment.
What was the best thing about your course and Warwick?
The degree has a very diverse stance, and the coursework can be tailored to topics of your personal interest. The university offers you the freedom to investigate topics that you have a passion for, which also allowed for me to learn about a range of environmental issues that other students were researching, and were not within the syllabus.
