"I had a first degree in Applied Chemistry and then studied for the Masters in Environmental Management at the University of Stirling.
"Gaining the Masters has enabled me to further develop skills that have become so valuable to my current career. A month after completing the course I started work as a field engineer for an oilfield services company in Oman and have been able to apply many of the skills and information gained from the MSc course.
"There is a lot of room for personal growth at Stirling as the course is not just spoon-fed; there are opportunities to develop ideas, and apply the information in real life situations. All the staff and support staff were more than helpful, and were very encouraging and supportive, both during my time there and since."
Jo is now working for Lloyds Register in Norway.
