Study with us

We specialise in teaching in the Environmental Science and Earth Science disciplines, and also contribute to teaching in the biological and planetary sciences. Our teaching ranges from introductory modules, through to degree level and Master’s programmes. In addition, our modules and qualifications are informed by the scientific and educational research we do. This ensures that what you learn is current, of scientific interest and relevant to helping understand and address some of the environmental issues facing the world today. It also means we are constantly reviewing how we deliver our modules and the practical skills you will develop, to enhance what and how you learn throughout your studies.
