Course programme

This four year course follows a similar structure to the BSc Environmental Sciences, but with an additional year of gaining work experience on an industrial placement in the third year. The first year of study employs compulsory core modules to establish your knowledge on essential topics. You will have the chance to select from optional modules in the second and final years in order to allow you to direct your own studies. In the final year you will also have the opportunity to undertake an independent research project on a subject of your choice.

Year 1
A series of compulsory modules introduce you to the general scientific principles governing our environment, including Global Environmental Challenges and Understanding the Dynamic Planet. Multi-disciplinary modules from the wider Faculty of Science allow you to develop the essential analytical skills you will need during further years – including Maths for Scientists, Sustainability & Society and Field Skills.

Year 2
As the course progresses you are given greater freedom to tailor your course around your own interests, choosing from a wide variety of modules, from Geodynamics to Hydrology. You will also undertake a free choice module, giving you the chance to take a module from any school across the university, subject to permission. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your scientific skills with business acumen, or take a foreign language to improve your international employability.

Year 3 (Year in Industry)
You will spend your third year on an industrial work placement lasting from 9 to 14 months, gaining relevant experience and developing your skills and knowledge. We have established research links throughout the UK and beyond, and we will help you in identifying and competing for appropriate positions.

Year 4
Your final year of study focuses on a substantial individual research project, allowing you to investigate a specialist area in professional depth. You will also study a range of advanced modules surrounding Environmental Science and its wider social context.
