Reading Time: 5 minutes By Celeste Kellock In the space of two weeks my MSc has taken me to Africa and the Arctic! One of the perks of geosciences, if you are like minded, is fieldwork and fieldtrips! I love being able to see a process from start to finish, from data collection to write-up. Being outdoors gives me […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Every year, the British Ecological Society (BES) puts on a policy training day that is open to students, professionals, and those who are interested in learning about the interaction between science and politics.

Reading Time: 7 minutes   I don’t know about you, but when it comes to exam season or even nearing the end of any semester, I find it nearly (basically) impossible to find a place to study (especially on campus).

Reading Time: 3 minutes At the end of April we spent a week in the surprisingly sunny Cairngorms National Park, one of Scotland’s two national parks, and the largest the UK has to offer.

I on the other hand, am not feeling the strain of postgraduate study life. This […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes It’s true that most of your postgraduate university life will be spent in lectures, reading or studying. However, it is important not to forget that there are so many other amazing things going on in the outside world, that do actually compliment your education. Many people will choose to join societies or athletic clubs, take […]

Reading Time: 5 minutes When I am asked what programme I am studying I always get a blank look when I answer “Environmental Protection and Management”. The blank look of ‘what is that? What do you study? What does that mean?’ is apparent. Because of this, many of us in the program have come up with a short few […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes It was with cautious steps that I finally decided to apply for the Masters I had wanted to do since completing my undergraduate degree, an alarming 17 years ago.  I have been working full time since then and although I’ve completed lots of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and online courses, they didn’t provide me with […]
