How to apply

I approached my old tutor at Southampton University on the off chance that I might be able to study lizards full time as a PhD. I was so surprised that the response was ‘yes’... I can’t believe that I am now working in the conservation world studying such an important species. It just goes to show how fruitful a meeting can be with one of the staff at the University of Southampton.
