2020-21 applications update (04 August 2020)

Please note that all option strands for the 2020-21 academic year are now full and new applications will not be considered.


Autumn term 2020-21

Courses will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). This ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.

To ensure each programme of study can be delivered safely, we'll be making some changes to our courses for 2020-21. Read about the changes to our undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses, and to MRes and PhD courses.

Find out more about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus on our COVID-19 pages for current students and offer holders.

Postgraduate Teaching Office:

The application of scientific knowledge, policy and engineering to solve environmental problems and address sustainability.

Our students acquire a diverse range of discipline-specific problem-solving frameworks for tackling contemporary environmental issues. A major emphasis of the course is on the way that environments function and on the compatible tools, alternative technologies and policies for sustainable environmental management. MSc Candidates also learn to appreciate that successful projects depend, at least in part, on belonging to a network of experts aiming to advance personal and collective environmental goals. We emphasise a friendly and supportive learning environment.

The course combines the natural and social sciences in a truly interdisciplinary manner, providing a foundation for graduates to demonstrate their ability to identify and resolve environmental and sustainability issues in a holistic way. The specialist options in the second term are designed to cater for a variety of individual interests and career requirements. In addition to the interdisciplinary course modules, our dedicated teaching staff help students to create strong links with industry, business and regulators, delivering invaluable interaction between scientific/technological training and industrial experience.
