This programme is for graduates who wish to pursue a career in the environment sector in the UK or internationally, or those already working in the sector seeking to enhance their skills and employability. Graduates have an excellent track record of securing jobs in environmental consultancy, research and government agencies.
The unique emphasis of this programme is the practical challenge of measuring, analysing and evaluating dynamic environmental data for environmental problem-solving and management purposes.
A key element of the programme is the dissertation, for which students undertake research relating to any special interests they have in environmental management.
Research expertise within the Department spans a wide range of specialisms including hydrology, climatology, limnology, aquatic and terrestrial ecology, glaciology and geomorphology, informed by fieldwork in key environmental systems, including rivers, lakes, estuaries, forests, deserts, coastal dunes and glaciers.
Environment-specific theory and skills
Coursework and examination, plus a dissertation of up to 20,000 words on an agreed topic.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Upper second class honours degree in geography or other science / engineering discipline or international equivalent. Other applicants will be given due consideration if they have professional or work experience commensurate with the programme’s aims and content.
No work experience is required.
