Bonnie Waycott

3666.JPG I chose the Undergraduate Certificate in Sustainable Aquaculture with St Andrews because it allowed me to study a marine-related subject (something that has interested me greatly over the years) despite having no background or formal qualifications in science.

I did worry whether I could strike a balance between work and study but the course was very self-paced, and having 24-hour access to the online portal meant I could study in line with my everyday schedule and go over certain parts of the course in my own time before moving on. My tutors were extremely approachable and supportive - flexible with deadlines and always available to help and answer questions. I found this very encouraging and reassuring.

TheFishSite.com was very accessible and full of useful information on webinars, aquaculture-related events and recommended books. I was particularly impressed with the webinar content, feature stories and articles and the many viewpoints of industry experts.

Bonnie has since progressed to study our MSc in Sustainable Aquaculture.

This course provides a broad overview of the aquaculture industry, covering a wide range of species and farming practices. Having already started a career in aquaculture, this afforded me the opportunity to gain knowledge of species outside of those I work with on a daily basis, thus enabling me to work in multiple fields in the future. Distance learning can be a fantastic way to gain additional qualifications without the need to take time off work, and the workload can be managed around any type of work schedule. At the end of the day, I have been able to successfully complete my degree and continue to work and progress in my current employment without interruption.
