Student Profile


After studying Geography BA, I wanted to further specify my learning and have always wanted to do climate change studies. Fortunately, the course began at the end of my undergraduate degree and presented with me with a good opportunity to continue my studies at a time where getting job would have been difficult. As well as this, knowing students who were also going from geography to this course and lecturers like Richard, made it an easy decision.

My main motivations behind studying my master's degree were:

To give myself a better chance of getting a job after university.
To continue studying something I am passionate about.

I would like to work in climate change and sustainability, whereby this course has actually helped me to specify towards energy modelling. I would like to think my masters might give me an advantage when applying for some jobs too.

The greatest skills I have learned during my master's:

A mental skill would be time management, working on many deadlines and a part time job.
From a technical perspective, I have learnt multiple energy modelling systems software’s.
