Choosing to study Environmental Planning at Waikato was an easy choice for South African-born, Lana Gooderham who loves the environment and had heard about the reputation of the Bachelor of Environmental Planning.

"The thing that attracted me to study Environmental Planning was the fact that I was studying towards a specific career path. I took comfort in knowing that by the end of my degree, I would know exactly where I was going."

It was that logic that drove Lana exactly to where she wanted to go.

As a graduate, Lana worked as a graduate planner for the New Zealand Transport Agency and she is now an Intermediate Policy Planner at Hamilton City Council.

"The best part of my job is seeing how everything I learnt from my Environmental Planning degree comes together in real life."
