Student Profile(s)

Chunyan Hou

Choosing to study Environmental engineering, especially in terms of water and wastewater treatment technique, was one of the main areas I wished to improve in my previous career, and the University of Leeds was the only university in the UK to offer this course.

The best aspect of the course highlighted fundamental skills in water, wastewater and solid waste treatment and management and also provided broader knowledge in the related fields of water resources, bioenergy and project management. These form the core of environmental engineering. The course taught us the main ideas and concepts of the field of environmental engineering and provided chances for us to carry out further research in our future career or studies. I think this was the best aspect of studying at the university.

For any students thinking about studying the same course at Leeds, if you want to strengthen your ability in water, wastewater and solid waste engineering design in an efficient way, this one-year Master’s degree course at the University of Leeds is a good choice. Applying wasn’t complicated and there was no need to take GRE exams. The cost (including both the tuition and the living cost) was reasonable for a postgraduate education and it’s also rational and feasible from a timing and financial point of view. The one-year of study was very intense and tough, but I obtained a Distinction degree after working hard. Studying at Leeds was challenging at times but I really enjoyed my time there.
