 Student testimonial

As a mature student making a significant change in career direction I felt that acquiring a master’s degree at a highly respected university such as Edinburgh would illustrate to potential employers that I was both educated to a high standard and capable of tackling new challenges successfully.  I chose the MSc Soils and Sustainability course because it provided very specific skills and knowledge in an increasingly important area of science whilst putting it into the context of wider environmental sustainability.  This is a subject area I have become increasingly passionate about and it was fantastic to find myself studying something that was hugely relevant at a global level, at an institution at the forefront of environmental science and in the company of tutors and fellow students who shared my commitment and enthusiasm for what they were doing.  Altogether, a perfect combination!
