"The course has challenged me to take opportunities I did not think were possible, from being the Lead Department Representative to undertaking a placement with the Brighton and Hove Green Party. Our course trip to Majorca was a particular highlight for me as it was educational and exciting. My lecturers have really supported and inspired me to push myself."

"Geology at UWE has given me a number of opportunities including the chance to go to Tenerife on a volcanology intern. The geology programme at UWE gives you the relevant transferable field experience to go into different fields and perform highly. The course has also given me the confidence to pursue a career in volcanology and the lecturers are supportive of any direction you want to go in."
