Student review
I loved the 4 year course with plenty of hands on practical experience out in the field compared to being in a classroom all day however since graduating I have struggled to secure a full time job within the environmental field with little help from Southern Cross University to achieve this, other than that I thoroughly enjoyed 4 years of Environmental Science
