Environmental Science BSc(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Graham Lewis

Name: Graham Lewis
Age: 33
Course: BSc Environmental Science
Level: In final year
Route to University: Mature student
Accommodation: Living with parents

"I used to work as an insurance underwriter, but after working in the city for 11 years, I decided that I didn't want to be doing that job for the rest of my life.  However, I had left school at 17 and wasn't qualified for anything else. I wanted to be able to get a job that would allow me to work outdoors and outside London and so, after much consideration, I decided to study environmental science.

The field trips have been excellent. That's where Kingston excels.  It does the practical stuff extremely well. The Spanish trip was especially good. We made so many connections, talked to so many interesting people and saw so many things.

I feel that studying environmental science was an excellent decision for me.  I don't want to spend the next 40 years doing something I don't want to be doing. If you're not happy with what you do for a living, then you've got to do something about it."

 

Ying Tang

Age: 23
Course: Environmental Science with Business BA/BSc(Hons)
Level: Completed 2nd year
Route to University: Foundation course (international student)
Accommodation: Halls of residence 1st year, rents privately 2nd year.

"I chose this degree because I thought it would be interesting and offer a wide range of career options in the future. I had heard about Kingston from friends, but decided to visit before making up my mind. I found the University provided an excellent study atmosphere and met friendly teaching staff.

I think the laboratory lessons have interested me most.  This is where you relate the theory into practice. The group projects help us learn to study independently and I've enjoyed the field trips. They offer the chance to get to know classmates and teachers better. This has made me much more confident in discussions and able to ask the teachers for help whenever I want."
