Environmental Science degrees

Environmental Science students in the field

We offer the following undergraduate degree courses in Environmental Sciences:

Academic study of the environment, whether at a global, national or local scale, has evolved rapidly in recent years, and there has never been a greater impetus to understand and resolve complex environmental issues. Environmental scientists study interactions between physical, chemical and biological processes in the environment, and their application to the resolution of environmental problems.

Our portfolio of modules across our degree programmes is incredibly varied and intellectually stimulating – which is why we give you the opportunity to choose what you want to study and specialise in the areas that most interest you. In fact, our degrees are among the most flexible anywhere. 

The Collaborative Teaching Laboratory is a brand new state-of-the-art facility designed to support the latest methods in laboratory teaching for STEM subjects.
