I always enjoyed the physical aspects of geography yet having not done ‘environmental science’ as an A-Level I was worried about my background knowledge before studying it. However, it was definitely a risk worth taking as I love the subject. It seemed natural for me to do a degree studying the environment as it was already one of my main passions and I wanted to further my education in an area I was interested in. Similarly, the environment is a growing area in the employability sector. and I wanted a degree that opened lots of doors for me as opposed to being a very specific course. When I attended the open day I spoke to the Environmental Science lecturers to find out more about the course and realised it sounded like an area I would be interested in and would enjoy. This prompted me to study it as a combined honours alongside geography.
