Student Profile – Maria Stanisz
Maria from Poland came from a background in horticulture and for years worked in a garden centre before deciding to change her career path.
“I put a lot of thought into what I would enjoy doing, and since I was always interested in biology I decided to pursue a career in biological sciences. The Applied Bioscience course seemed like the best suited choice and I chose SRUC based on the positive reviews from my friends who studied here.”
“SRUC laboratories are well equipped, providing a very good environment for learning practical skills. I have used the library a lot, particularly the quiet study room, which is an ideal space for concentrating on studying. Practical laboratory classes allowed me to gain practical laboratory skills. I really enjoyed conducting independent research for my Graded Unit Projects, which were focused on microbiology.”
“While I was studying I was looking for work in a laboratory environment and I came across a job offer at SRUC for a technician in Carbon, Crop and Soil Systems Research group. My application was successful and I currently work providing technical support to researchers and students on a daily basis putting gained knowledge into good use”
“No matter the difficulties stay focused on your goal, and there are plenty of professionals at SRUC ready to help you in achieving it.”
