Student Profile


"While I've been studying here, I've been able to develop confidence in myself because of the support I've had around me here. I know that there's someone in the department I can go to with any issue at all. I think because I had such a great time at my undergrad here, it's why I decided to carry on. I know that the support here is really good and to continue that into my Master’s was something I really wanted to do." - Josh, MA Environment, Culture and Society
