“My best advice: come to Ås!”

Marius works on assignment as a national park manager for Midtre Nordland National Park Board. There are five national park managers working there, and four of them have their education from Ås.

As a national park manager, Marius Saunders has a varied everyday life. The tasks include management planning in the protected areas, case processing for the national park board and facilitation for visitors to the national parks in Nordland. A working day can take place inside the office with projects, the next day there may be a meeting with a political board and the third day may be out on inspection in one of Nordland's beautiful national parks.

After high school, Marius studied economics. Then he learned one thing: work is so much more than money. So, he decided to look for other studies that better suited his interests. Since Marius loves nature, animals and outdoor life, biology became a natural choice. He has taken both his bachelor's and master's degrees at NMBU.

“The student environment at NMBU is very good and I had five absolutely fantastic years at Ås.”

“Biology is a broad discipline and you can work within many exciting professional areas. Take a little law, statistics and GIS in addition to the biology classes, and then even more job opportunities will be open to you!”
