Why Us?

The perfect place to study Environmental Science

Liverpool is situated alongside a fascinating and dynamic marine and coastal environment, with the world-renowned Sefton Dunes juxtaposed with the once heavily polluted but now vastly improved River Mersey.

Our course modules make practical reference to the long tradition of innovation and success found here, in habitat conservation, environmental protection, coastal resource management and ecosystem restoration.

We are also within easy reach of the Peak District, Lake District and North Wales National Parks. These provide great field study sites with dynamic environments. These places will give you prime opportunities to reconstruct past environmental change, examine environmental processes, study physical-biological interactions and examine environmental hazards.

Our close collaborations with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the School of Veterinary Sciences and the School of Engineering provide exciting platforms for exploring climate change impacts and adaptation options.
