Thursday evening Policy Seminars

As part of the MSc course, the Centre holds a regular series of Thursday evening Policy Seminars given by a range of speakers from areas including government, industry and non-government organisations who come to talk about their particular involvement in the environmental field. These seminars are of great value, as they provide a prime opportunity for informal socialising and networking.

External speakers range from international experts to course alumni, with their contribution ensuring coverage of current issues, the possibility of placement-style dissertation research and an invaluable source of job announcements. 

All seminars will take place on Teams, 17.30 – 18:30 UK time. All students are expected to attend.
