Ben said: "I always dreamed of completing a Masters and when I decided that I wanted to change my career in order to work in the environmental field I decided that this was the perfect opportunity and would definitely enhance my career prospects. My previous employment experience plus my Masters from Brunel were an ideal combination when applying for my current job.
I was struck by the variety of tasks we were asked to undertake, emphasis being paid equally to working in a team and individually. The course went beyond purely academic study requiring a range of transferable skills to be developed. In particular I feel my presentation skills and ability to communicate increased dramatically as a result of being required to regularly feedback our research to our peers. This has helped me enormously in my current job where I have to speak to a wide range of stakeholders about a range of subjects.
In general my course was a small and very close-knit group. Studying this great course was a real pleasure, equipping me with skills and memories that will stay with me a very long time."
This award is funded by a Livery Company of the City of London. The Worshipful Company of Water Conservators has particular interest in issues related to the River Thames and London, and although it is not a requirement that candidates have a specific interest in this area, candidates with particular experience, or ideas for dissertation topics which are of particular relevance may have an advantage.
Successful applicants will show an interest in, and understanding of, issues related to water, which may be demonstrated through previous studies, membership of organisations or voluntary groups. You will be able to show an ability to communicate effectively, both through the written word as evidenced in the application document and through your academic qualifications.
Students applying for this bursary must have completed a full application form and have been offered a place on one of the Institute's Masters courses in Environmental Science.
Once you have received your offer of a place on one of our MSc courses you must submit a 500 word essay or report which clearly indicates your interest in environmental issues related to water. The document may also contain information on ideas that you have in relation to your dissertation topic, as successful applicants will be required to undertake a dissertation project that is focussed on issues related to water.
