Carlota Martin Souto
Carlota Martin Souto was living in Spain but wanted to study abroad. She decided to apply for our BSc (Hons) Forest Management programme, which included a year in industry with Scottish Forestry and its Central Conservancy.
"I looked at a few places but I had heard good things about the more practically orientated course and the high rate of employability for Scottish School of Forestry students. I really enjoyed the school's setting in Culloden Woods and the different experience that students from different backgrounds brought to the class and the family like environment.
"The opportunity of studying up to honours degree level opened up the door to postgraduate study and my work placement allowed me to successfully apply for several other jobs in the forestry sector that have enriched my academic and professional experience, and helped me progress in my career."
Carlota starts an MSc in Biodiversity and Taxonomy of Plants in September 2019, which she plans to do part-time while working for a forestry consultancy.
