Student review
This course is fantastic for anyone considering a career in development, whether in humanities or environment. There are even more options for courses & double degrees (like law) available at the uni now than when I began studying, as well as options for internships & overseas study. I would definitely recommend this course, especially if you enjoy human geography.
