My RAU experience
I have a real passion for wildlife, so the British Wildlife Conservation course really appealed to me. It combined a practical hands-on conservation approach with supporting academic theory, which builds a good foundation for my career in the conservation sector. The work placement element of the course is particularly valuable. I completed mine at Itchen Valley Country Park as a Volunteer Park Ranger, and gained key industry contacts and real-life conservation experience.
I hope to build on my existing environmental and landscape knowledge to become a Park Ranger or Countryside Manager.
What I gained from the RAU
I feel I made the best decision in coming to the RAU. I’ve made some great friends and memories that will stay with me for the rest of my life. My aim now is to apply for the Countryside Management top-up degree where I will be able to turn my foundation into a full BSc (Hons) degree. I hope to build on my existing environmental and landscape knowledge to become a Park Ranger or Countryside Manager.
