Student Experiences


David Finlay

David Finlay studied a BSc in Management at Queen's University Belfast before taking a year out. With a year of voluntary work under his belt, and a clearer idea of what he wanted to do, David returned to Queen's to take up an MSc Environmental Management at Queen's University Management School.

"I decided to study an MSc in Environmental Management for a number of reasons. Firstly, whilst working for Fermanagh District Council, I was actively involved in performing conservation and other environmental work, and developed an interest in the management of mans' impacts on the environment. Secondly, I felt that the MSc Environmental Management would compliment and build on what I had already learnt in my undergraduate course. My final reason for studying this course was because I felt that the environmental sector is a relatively new but rapidly expanding sector, and therefore, having this qualification will enhance my employability in this field.

I chose to study my postgraduate degree at Queen's University Management School because I had an extremely positive experience both at Queen's and in the city of Belfast during my undergraduate degree. I knew I could expect high quality teaching and support at the university, as well as a fun and secure city environment."
