GTA/PhD candidate Emma Readitt attended the NERC funded ‘Quaternary Palaeoecology short course’ last week in the Natural History Museum, London. Emma successfully obtained her place on the training course in December 2018 through a competitive application process. The course fully funded 15 students to travel to London, provided accommodation and to be trained by leading scholars in the palaeo field. Of the 15 students, 13 were NERC funded and given priority on the course. Emma obtained one of the two non-NERC funded slots which was notably competitive.
