Southampton is well-respected for biological sciences and it was a good choice. The degree was very flexible and I was able to study several interesting aspects of the subject.

There was a tremendous choice of units so you could explore different areas. I took optional modules in pharmacology which stood me in good stead later.

Biological Sciences has always been very supportive of my work. And now it’s nice to be able to give something back.

The fieldwork skills that I gained from my course have been invaluable in the process of developing a career in such a competitive field.

I have not ruled out going back to study for a doctorate later on. But at the moment I want to get on with earning a living and, hopefully, doing well in the City.

My friends doing dissertations in arts subjects are envious that I’m breaking new ground with my research.

It’s a fantastic job, I’m getting paid for doing something I really enjoy in a wonderful location in the sun, so I really can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be!

Degrees from an established UK university such as Southampton are always respected in my country. I would advise anyone to study at Southampton.

The totally different thing about studying for a PhD is that you get to spend your whole time in the lab. You have your research question to explore but, of course, the more experiments you do, the more questions you have. Research is fascinating and, perhaps, neverending.

Teaching at Southampton is research-led, which was a big selling point for me. My course also taught me self-directed learning and time management, skills that are valuable in my job.

I’m a firm believer that the future of conservation lies in youth… empowering themselves to make change happen.

What I enjoyed most about my time at Southampton was the sheer level of opportunity it provided me with. On the academic side I had exposure to cutting edge research, flexibility to shape my degree to fit my interests, fantastic lecturers and a world class department building. Equally important (perhaps even more so) were the non-academic opportunities: I was a student ambassador, part of the Alumni Discovery Initiative, Treasurer of the SULCC and helped the department with National Science and Engineering week each year. Not only did this give me real world skills, like time management, budget handling and ability to organise outreach activities, it helped me to broaden my horizons and meet new people.

It's hard to believe when I walked into Southampton as a student, I would remain there for my career. But I've always enjoyed teaching and talking with students. It was an excellent career choice.
Robert Walker - BSc Zoology 1956 and PhD Neurophysiology 1959
