Student Profiles

Khairiyah Mat

Progressing into Higher Education has always been an ambition of mine because I want to be a specialist in the field of animal science.

I chose Writtle University College for my studies because it offered the course that best suited my interests. The course will not only aid me in realising my career requirements but will enhance my expertise and competence within the profession of academia.

Writtle University College is a great environment for study, the campus and landscape is both peaceful and calming. I have also had a really good time with my friends at the College, who have come from all around the world; the international community at the University is fun and comforting. So far I have had a great experience studying at Writtle University College.

Kate Wood

During my Masters, I worked in the Falconry section at Colchester Zoo and carried out two projects there. I undertook part of my dissertation in South Africa and, after my course, moved out there permanently.

On the strength of my course and experience, I was approached by a local primary school. I now run a "bush buddies" scheme, teaching lessons to children about the environment and organising outings.

Without the Masters I obtained at Writtle University College, I wouldn't be doing the work I love now.
