Comments about BSc Environmental Science - At the institution - Reading - Berkshire

  • Objectives
    Many students want to study Environmental Science because of a deep interest in the natural environment and the sustainable use of its resources. These aspects are a core part of our Environmental Science degrees in Reading. We also believe that an understanding of natural systems and their interactions in space and time are also essential. It is only by describing and quantifying natural change that we can accurately assess the impact of human activity on our planet. This means that strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of resources can be developed and managed in the best possible way. With this is mind our students study aspects of the lithosphere, biosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere and how these can change through time. Wherever possible this approach is both qualitative and quantitative.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
