  • Objectives
    The environment is one of the most important and exciting areas for scientific enquiry today. Industrial activities have caused many forms of environmental pollution, and identifying and solving the problems that arise from damage to our natural and managed ecosystems make environmental science a key area of expertise in the search for a sustainable future. This course aims to develop a scientific understanding of the processes by which living organisms interact with their environments, and how the pollution of air, soil and water can be remedied.
  • Entry requirements
    Required subjects: two A level science subjects (can include maths and geography) together with an additional GCE Advanced levels or AS levels in other subjects IB score: 24-30 (including specified grades in science subjects and English Language)
  • Academic title

  • Course description
    BSc Environmental Science


    Year one

    You will develop a sound specific understanding of the main processes by which living organisms interact with their environments. This will involve modules such as Principles of Ecology, Global Environmental Processes, Sustainability and the Atmospheric Environment. You will also develop transferable skills in I.T., report writing and experimental design.

    Year two

    Core modules in Soil Science, Environmental Measurement, Hydrogeochemistry, Environmental Information Technology and Communicating Environmental Science are supplemented with a wide range of optional modules. In addition, you will undertake at least one residential field course.

    Year three

    As well as a wide selection of optional modules, including a field course within a European country, the final (honours) year gives you the chance to undertake an individual research project which constitutes one-third of your work for this year. Projects normally involve topics relating to the pollution of air, soil and water. You will present your research orally as part of a seminar session and in written form as a concise scientific paper.
