"When I left school I was not entirely sure of what I wanted to do, but I was always interested in understanding the environment. The course is ideal for people that are interested in the environment as it touches on all major ecological systems. After I graduate I plan to use my studies to work for the Police as an Environmental Crime Officer."

"Site visits are a major component of our studies which enhance our learning and understanding of the industry. Sometimes a textbook can only tell you so much, it’s actually seeing something in action that makes you remember it! We also study in unconventional classrooms - like the middle of the Cairngorm National Park."
