Learn how the MSc Sustainability, Planning and Environmental Policy course fulfilled Rhys’s interest in the environment and prepared him for his subsequent role as a Graduate Planner with Savills.

"Cardiff has all the appeal of a large city, but in a more compact fashion. There are always cultural and sporting events happening, which make it a great place to live - both as a student and a young professional."

Rhys Govier, MSc Sustainability, Planning and Environmental Policy

"Having undertaken my BSc at Cardiff, I chose to continue at the School of Geography and Planning on the MSc Sustainability, Planning and Environmental Policy.

"My master's served to fulfil my keen interest in the environment and facilitate my career progression, with the aim of becoming a Chartered Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute – the accredited body for Town Planners.

"Following my studies, I have gained a role with Savills as a Graduate Planner and hope to settle in Cardiff for the foreseeable future.

"During my studies I became a keen member of the Cardiff University Rambling & Hiking Club, which provided me with the opportunity to see a great deal of the countryside and mountains South Wales (and beyond) has to offer.

"I have also taken the opportunity to extend my studies through the University’s Continuing & Professional Education, where I will hopefully continue to learn, develop interests, and meet new people."
