Choosing to study in Orkney was about gaining a unique experience of the renewables sector but also living in a completely new place. Orkney is the ideal place to witness the advancement of renewable energy industry and has provided practical experience to take into the workplace.

Away from studying, living in Orkney was fantastic; the class throws together a group of people all looking to try something new and was great fun. There are always opportunities to get involved in the local scene either through sports, local groups and clubs or just in the pub!

On leaving Orkney I started working for the EDP Renewables working on the Moray Firth offshore wind farm for which my studies inform a large part of what I do.
