MSc Conservation and Biodiversity, Penryn Campus

“The biggest highlight of the programme was the field trip to Kenya. We visited various national parks and conservation areas and learnt about the impact of conservation practices on the local people. Camping in the wild African landscape was a unique and intimate experience; we made incredible friendships and lasting memories. It was definitely a life-changing trip!

I have also really enjoyed learning from some of the top marine conservationists in the world. The academics here have amazing connections and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to meet many of these important people in small classroom settings.

I have absolutely loved living in Cornwall. The commute between Falmouth and the Penryn Campus is easy, and has access to some of the most beautiful coastal areas in the UK. Although it is different to the United States (both socially and academically), I have had no problem settling in and have been welcomed with open arms by the other students here.

I would love to work for an environmental NGO doing some form of conservation work. I am passionate about the natural world and would love to utilise the conservation skills that I have learned at Exeter to make the world a better place.”
