Designed with careers in mind

The School of Environmental Sciences places a strong emphasis on applied work, where knowledge and skills are focused on tackling current issues and agendas across our society. You will graduate with skills, knowledge and, crucially, experience to excel in many aspects of how Earth systems operate, and the impact that human activity is having on these natural systems.

Our emphasis on the excellent teaching of practical skills means that you will be taught in our award-winning facility, multi-disciplinary Central Teaching Laboratories that benefit from a £5.6 million investment to have the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art laboratory equipment used exclusively for teaching undergraduate students. Outside of these labs, all our degree programmes include field classes taught by staff with an international reputation in their fields, allowing you apply and develop your skills out in authentic, real-world situations.

A number of the School’s degree programmes involve laboratory and field work. The field work is carried out in various locations, ranging from inner city to coastal and mountainous environments. We consider applications from prospective disabled students on the same basis as all other students, and reasonable adjustments will be considered to address barriers to access.
