Student Profile(s)

Amelia Keane, Environmental Consultant, Malone O'Regan Environmental, Dublin.

I have always known I wanted to work in the environmental field, so after completing my undergraduate degree in Zoology I knew that the next step would be the MSc Wildlife Conservation and Management programme at UCD.

This programme has a broad range of topics, which enabled me to develop a better understanding of different aspects of Irish ecology and environmental policies.

The lecturers are very supportive, very understanding and very passionate about their subjects. The practical experience that I gained in undertaking habitats survey and report writing was extremely beneficial when applying for jobs. I am now working as an Environmental Consultant where I get the opportunity to travel around Ireland and survey a variety of different habitats, birds, mammals, and much more.

I would highly recommend this programme for anyone looking to work in the environmental field.
