As a Global Environmental Change student you will develop a broad understanding of the causes and impacts of environmental and climate change and awareness of a range of mitigation and adaptation options. You will develop in-depth expertise in the area of your MSc thesis. Specialists in this area are increasingly sought by the private sector, international non-governmental organisations, the UN and government departments. The MSc can also be an ideal basis for pursuing a research career through a PhD.
One year full-time or two years part-time.
Teaching is by a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, self-paced learning, directed reading and practicals. Assessment of taught modules is by a mix of coursework and examination. The MSc thesis is assessed separately.

Students are normally required to have at least a lower second-class honours degree (or equivalent) in an environment related or a science subject. Upper second-class and first-class students will be preferred. Appropriate industrial or professional experience can be considered as an equivalent entry qualification on a case-by-case basis. Students for whom English is not their first language are required to perform to the required standard in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or English Language Test Score (IELTS).
No work experience is required.
