My favourite topic I've studied is geology, and I have had many opportunities to take my learning beyond the University and out into the field. We went to White Scar Caves to check out the different rock types and see for ourselves various rock formations. I found the experience really insightful, especially being able to see how the rock formed in sequence over time, it helped me to contextualise what we learn in lectures and relate it back to real environments.
My tutors are also academic researchers, which means that our learning is tailored around discoveries made at the forefront of science and innovation. I am able to study real, relevant subjects and learn about new developments in topics such as climate change and the effects on our ecosystems almost as they happen. My course has enabled me to take a field trip to Mount Etna - with so many opportunities to get hands-on with my learning, I know this degree can take me wherever I want it to.
