The study of Environmental Science also includes an appreciation of how technology and regulatory processes can be applied to prevent environmental degradation and an awareness of practical remediation methods. Professionals working in the field of Environmental Science need to be able to combine an understanding of science with a knowledge of the legislative frameworks and the regulatory authorities for environmental protection.
This course will provide you with a strong, broad foundation in Environmental Science and includes both a theoretical and applied perspective. You will be trained in a substantial range of transferable skills in laboratory work, computing, data analysis, report writing and project management.
This course is particularly designed to appeal to students who wish to begin their degree by studying a generic science base in their first year and then moving towards a more customised pathway in their final year which will suit the areas of interest they have developed during the second year of their degree. A key part of this is the third year research project where students will have the opportunity to work closely with an academics research programme.
Practical experience through fieldwork, lab work and work placements form a major part of this degree and there are a range of local, national and international opportunities available. Graduates will be well equipped to find employment with any of these organisations. Alternatively, you may progress to Masters courses and further research.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
