Molly's story

With a first degree in Wildlife Conservation, Molly Frost decided to take the next step and study for her Masters in Wildlife Conservation and Technology at LJMU.

“My first degree made me realise that I wanted to be a researcher and lecturer so postgraduate study was a natural progression. The great thing about being a postgraduate student is that your tutors see you as someone qualified in your field and that really helps with your confidence. Yes, it can be challenging at times but as your lecturers believe in you, you find the confidence to get through.

There have already been many highlights on my programme such as flying a drone and learning about the applications of technology in conservation. What really stood out for me, however, was our field trip to Tanzania. I chose to undertake a drone study whilst I was there and was able to apply my learning in a real life situation. I saw wild chimpanzees, baboons and red-tailed monkeys. It is something I will never forget.

The lecturers on my programme are excellent – I really can’t fault them. If they see you are a good student and work hard, they will do everything in their power to help. They want you to succeed and they want the University to succeed and you can’t buy that kind of support. It is important to be confident in what you do and to speak out if things aren’t working for you. Education is a lifelong adventure and you need to take from it whatever you can.

I originally moved to Liverpool from Peterborough and found it so easy to settle in the city. Everyone is so friendly and you feel really safe here. After four years I can honestly say I still haven’t seen everything there is to see or done everything there is to do here. It’s such an exciting place – the ideal location for your postgraduate adventure.”
