Student Profile

Discover why our Mexican student, Carlos Estrada, changed his career path to study BSc (Hons) Horticulture at Writtle:

"I made one of the biggest decisions of my life this year, which was to change careers. I've always loved working with plants, visiting botanical gardens wherever I go and getting my hands dirty. As a mature student I was looking for a university that would offer me an interesting and challenging course programme, great facilities and good job prospects after graduation. After looking at different programmes and universities I decided Writtle University College was the one that offered what I was looking for. Not only have I found the programme and facilities amazing, I have met lovely people, from professors who are always there to help to the people in the canteen, who are very friendly and they make some really yummy food too! I found a job through the university's job board and I am also getting loads of support from the university to design a therapeutic garden for children with autism. Overall, Writtle has exceeded my expectations."
