578.jpg I chose Salford because I liked the modules and structuring of the course. The modules covered a variety of different environmental areas that I had a keen interest in and also what I thought would be relevant for my career aspirations. I also knew that Salford had been running their environmental courses for a number of years and had a good reputation.

The course had good links with industry which was apparent from the number of guest lecturers that provided insights into their environmental work.

I got a strong understanding of current issues, impacts and policies in the environmental sector. Additionally, I got the opportunity to focus on a specific topic of interest for my final project that was completed alongside a three month work placement.

Soon after completing my final project work for the course I was offered a position in the environmental sector. I now work for a global environmental consultancy on a number of international projects within environmental planning.
