Rachel Ward- BA Geography

"After graduating from Bangor with a Fist Class degree in geography  I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at the University of Cambridge.  I have been able to secure a job near Cambridge teaching geography at a Secondary School.

"My time in Bangor gave me the skills and confidence to move forward with my chosen career. The modules which I chose at Bangor fuelled my passion for geography and the outdoors. Especially the Geography Outdoors module and my Professional Placement as well as the Bangor Employability Award. The mix of lectures and outdoor fieldwork enabled me to develop skills leading groups in the outdoors.

"The location of the university could not be better; mountains, beaches and forests. This is a perfect place to study geography and the outdoors.  In my teaching career I plan to complete my Masters of Education at Cambridge, continuing my enjoyment of geography and teaching."
