BSc Environment Management

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time volunteering at the Wycombe Environment Centre - everyone I worked with was fantastic,  I made some great friends and built some excellent contacts. I learnt a huge amount from the experience, and the impact on my CV led to a job so thank you very much! Will be sure to visit again."
