MSc Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change

I chose to study the MSc Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change because of the many career opportunities I would gain and the broad skill set I would achieve if I studied it.

The course covers a wide range of subjects and allows me to specialize in my favourite aspects of geography as well as enabling the use of complex software such as arcGIS, which is a skill specifically requested by employers.

I studied Geography at undergraduate level at Swansea University with an emphasis on human geography. Swansea is a great university because of its location by the sea and it's so close to Gower. In addition, there is a sense of community that comes from being a campus university. I decided to continue my postgraduate studies at Swansea in order to continue to receive support to study in Welsh and experience the beautiful setting for an extra year.

Studying in Welsh is a natural choice for me. Completing my dissertation in Welsh was an enjoyable and straightforward process. I will receive a £1,000 Welsh Government Bursary for undertaking an element of the course through the medium of Welsh.
