I had been in the workforce for 10 years and was restless and dissatisfied. I really wanted to jump into something where I felt like I was making a difference and a contribution to the world. I've always had a love for wildlife so once I found this course it seemed like a perfect fit for what I was searching for. I honestly didn't have any specific goals in mind other than to further myself.
The best things about my course are definitely the teaching staff and the numerous field trips on offer. I am mostly involved with the Botany and Zoology departments and all of the academics and demonstrators have been extremely helpful and friendly. Everyone is very approachable and makes time for you. The field trips are great as the hands-on work accelerates your learning.
I have also had the opportunity to complete an internship where I spent a weekend checking nest boxes that have been provided as shelter for gliders. It was a wonderful experience where I got to meet people within the industry, and see what a fantastic job they are doing at conserving wildlife as well as picking up some new skills.
My course has excellent career prospects as it is a rapidly growing field that is only going to get larger. I am looking at a career in Ecology, specifically in Systematic Conservation Planning.
I've had a great time coming to uni. It was very daunting for me in the beginning as I was a bit older and hadn't done any sort of schooling for 10 years. I've been able to settle into uni life quite easily and the staff and people I've met have been a big part of that. It goes to show that it’s never too late!
