Meet our student

‘Many lecturers went out of their way to help me succeed. They were more than happy to discuss scientific research above and beyond the prescribed course work.

‘The hands-on practical classes – including dissections, research projects, fieldwork and off campus excursions – cemented the theory taught in lectures. Group assignments taught me how to collaborate, manage people and delegate tasks – skills I’m now applying in my current role.’
