PEOPLE HERE GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU.
PEOPLE GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU.
MY NAME IS KAT AND I’M BOTH AN ACADEMIC ASSOCIATE AND PHD STUDENT AT THE SCHOOL OF ANIMAL, RURAL & ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES.
I’m also very much a country bumkin, someone who is passionate about our native UK wildlife such as our grouse, hares and red squirrels.
People often forget how important and amazing our own British wildlife is.
But when you get to know the animals in depth as I do, when you spend 3 months in the field, studying their unique behaviours…well, it just fills you with awe.
I guess it’s the same with people; the more you get to know them, the more you’re passionate about them, the more you want to help them.
Tell us of a future you'd like to create and we'll give you the resources to make things happen.
THAT’S WHY I LOVE IT HERE. PEOPLE GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU.
To help you make your PhD as good as it could be. To find the funding to do what you need to do; to go to the conferences and meet collaborators, so at the end of your PhD, you are a fully trained researcher.
IT’S NOT JUST THAT IT’S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE – BUT THERE’S A REAL SENSE OF COMMUNITY.
They start as academics and students. And soon turn into friends.
And I know they will still be friends long after I leave.
