Hi, I'm Amelia Paszkowski and I studied BSc Geography with Oceanography within Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

I chose to study Geography at the University of Southampton because it had a great balance between high educational standards and also a social ambiance and friendly atmosphere.

Q: Why did you choose to undertake your studies in Geography at the University of Southampton?
I chose to study Geography at the University of Southampton because it had a great balance between high educational standards and also a social ambiance and friendly atmosphere. It is not the type of university that only focuses on your academic success, but also your personal one. 

Q: What do you enjoy about studying Geography at Southampton?
What I enjoyed most about studying Geography in Southampton were the fieldtrips (especially those to Picos and Tenerife) and the relationships that you build up with experts in the field, particularly in third year. I feel that my relationship with staff members in my area of interest (namely river morphology and hydrology), has allowed me to gain a thorough insight into the field, especially directing me to an appropriate masters and continuation of studying in this area. 

Q: What have you been able to achieve as a result of studying at the University of Southampton?
Throughout my three years in Southampton, I have developed various skills both academic and personal. Academically, I believe that the course teaches you to write in various styles that are useful for different projects including report-style writing, essay writing, briefing note writing, and article writing. Additionally, the personal skills that I have developed are a gain in confidence, independent daily life management, and professional communication skills. 

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Next year I will be doing a masters degree in Hydrology and Water Resources Management. After that I plan on doing a year of work experience and then potentially doing a PhD after that.
