At Surrey I became more confident and grew as a person. By the end of my experience I was a young adult with lots of ambition to achieve my goals.
The best thing about my course was taking in all the new knowledge, which I still use today. Before Surrey I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Doing a placement year really helped me get a clear picture of my future aspirations. If it wasn’t for Surrey, I wouldn’t have learned that I wanted to become an economist and go into further study.
I am currently a postgraduate student, studying for an MSc in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics. It is great to know that I am further developing the knowledge I took from Surrey, and that I now have the potential to make great environmental changes to the world.
