"I decided upon this programme, due to it’s relevance to my previous degrees in Environmental Studies and Political Science. This programme seemed to combine my interests in natural resource management and policy."
” I focused my studies and thesis topic on issues that seemed to be growing in importance in the real world. I wanted to see the impact of projects, financing and political action on achieving targets and my ability to contribute to positive change. I did my internship at the Finnish Forestry Research Institute (METLA), and it was a great experience because I was given a great deal of responsibility from the start and learned a lot about project management and participate in dynamic discussions by experts from around Europe on forest inventory methods, such as remote sensing, and statistical methods."
