Autumn term 2020-21 news

This course will begin on schedule in Autumn and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If students can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, the Department has made plans to still provide them a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online), known as ‘multi-mode’ delivery. The balance in the ‘multi-mode’ offering may be subject to change. We will do our best to provide you increased on-campus teaching and research activities as we progress throughout the year.  For more information about multi-mode delivery, the learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep students safe on campus, please see our Covid-19 information for applicants and offer holders page.

We will update our course pages with further details once they are finalised.

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.
