Student Profile(s)

Katie Goodman

I have always been interested in the natural world, environmental issues, sustainability and conservation. After travelling for a while following my undergraduate degree, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in the environmental field and the MSc in Conservation and Biodiversity at Cornwall sounded really interesting. There have been many valuable aspects of the programme, most notably the high level of external speakers and experts who have come in to speak to us regarding local and national conservation issues and programmes. The Cornwall Campus is in a great location surrounded by nature and it also means I don't have to travel far to carry out my research.
