Studying for a PhD in Ecology and Biodiversity

Evan Brenton-Rule

“Wellington is compact, so it’s easy to get places, but there is also a huge amount to do. The physical environment is epic. Great ocean and forest that you can really get into. Also, pretty densely packed cafes and restaurants to enjoy.

“The thing I’ve most enjoyed about studying at Victoria has been the opportunity to see new areas of New Zealand. The opportunity to spend, cumulatively, several months doing fieldwork in Golden Bay, Nelson Lakes National Park and Northland has been spectacular.

“The most valuable part of study isn’t the knowledge gained, but learning how to think. How to frame a problem, dissect it, and find a way to an answer – if there is one.”
