Sustainability is a hot topic. We know that we are facing issues such as climate change, problems caused by the production of waste, the loss of biodiversity and many of these can be caused by our industrial and commercial activities.

Student Profile

Bilal Mian

Graduated in 2021

Why did you decide to study a Masters at the University of Leeds?

I had completed my BEng in Civil Engineering prior at the University of Leeds and in light of the COVID-19 I wanted to stay in familiar territory, as well as this I was able to complete my masters with 10% discounted from the original price as I was a Leeds alumnus.

I also wanted to stay at the University of Leeds as the Sustainability and Consultancy MSc was a niche masters degree which I had not found elsewhere at any other university during my search for a masters degree, I was impressed with the School of Earth and Environment and their commitment to sustainability through the Sustainability Research Institute which encouraged me to complete the MSc with the school.

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?

The Sustainability Consultancy Project which was an independent piece of work which provided a unique insight of working in industry for a real life client and conducting a project of your choice, at your own pace, which allowed for independent learning as well as supportive academic advice throughout.

What would you say to students coming to do the same course?

The best thing I can say is try to enjoy the MSc as much as you can and remember that help is always at hand if you need it, teaching staff are always available and not only are they friendly, they are also extremely supportive throughout your studies. The teaching school was able to cater to my battles with mental health as well as family and religious commitments throughout the MSc and this enabled me to complete the MSc to the best of my ability.
