Before you came to Brookes what did you study and where?

BSc Hons Chemistry at Cardiff University

What made you choose Brookes as a place to study?

Good reputation of the School of the Built Environment and highly ranked against other universities.

What do you think of the course now you're here?

Really good and challenging. Gives you a good understanding and introduction of the construction industry.

What do you think of the industrial placement aspect of your course?

The placement is the best aspect of the course because it enables you to put your theory that you have learnt in class into practise. I felt nervous going into the industry for the first time and now my placement has changed everything. I have learnt a lot more about how things work and learnt new things that I have not learnt in class.

What are the best bits of studying at Brookes?

The industrial placement.

What advice do you have for others?

To do work experience.
