Why did you choose to study at Writtle University College?
What does Writtle University College mean to you?
The staff were supportive, encouraging and worked with you to reach your ambitions. The community feeling at Writtle was wonderful and created a real team atmosphere throughout the whole campus. Alongside this, the extra-curricular opportunities available created a great balance between the academic and social university experience.
Writtle University College is a unique place and offers opportunities that other universities cannot. I look back on my time at Writtle fondly and would recommend this specialist institution to anyone.
What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
My favourite modules whilst studying at Writtle were ‘Principles of Nutrition’ and ‘Applied Nutrition and Feeding’. These modules gave a profound overview of the subject area, whilst teaching current laboratory methods and allowed for discussion regarding recent advances within the field. Similarly, I loved the final year dissertation project. It allowed you to completely immerse yourself into your chosen field, create discussions and push research boundaries whilst presenting opportunities to communicate to wider audiences outside of the institution.
My Current Job
The diverse range of skills that I developed whilst studying at Writtle prepared me for my current PhD researcher position. I believe the opportunities, facilities and in depth knowledge I was exposed to throughout my time at Writtle were invaluable and have prepared me for my current step in my career path.
