"I really enjoyed the practical side of the course – going outside to research and write. It was investigative and encouraged a creative approach. I loved it! I was also excited to take modules across departments – I studied Conservation Management and Pollution, and also took a course on French. My husband and I spend our lives in Brittany, France, where I am a full-time gardener surrounded by countryside and dairy farms, as well as Southampton, UK, where I do voluntary work and participate in the creative group Waterside Writers."
Our research degrees provide opportunities for developing novel ideas and inter-disciplinary projects. Our staff have expertise and can offer supervision of projects across areas such as environmental microbiology, marine biology, ecology, photosynthesis, plant productivity, sustainable agriculture, environmental resource management, pollution, aerosol science and the impact of nanoparticles on the environment.
