Master of Environmental Planning

"After working in local government for a number of years as an Environmental Strategist I discovered just how much planning influences local communities and environments. So I decided to do a Masters degree and Macquarie was at the top of my list as it has a great reputation for producing excellent planning practitioners.

"The degree allowed me to explore areas of research that I was passionate about. Consequently I was able to co-author a journal publication. In the midst of my degree my daughter came along. The academic staff were fantastic; their patience and flexibility allowed me to continue my studies resulting in me receiving the Vice-Chancellor’s Commendation for Academic Excellence."
