    Description

    The BA in Environmental Social Science focuses on the environment primarily from the point of view of the social sciences and the humanities. At Kent, we recognise the need for adaptability in order to meet both immediate and future environmental challenges, so we encourage you to engage with a rich variety of environmental understandings from a wide range of academic perspectives, including anthropology, politics, economics, ecology, philosophy, law and the creative arts, making connections across the University curriculum. You can also develop relevant practical skills in areas such as biodiversity monitoring, practical habitat maintenance, and guiding and interpretation, and can choose to do an independent research project on a subject reflecting your interest in the environment.

    Careers

    The conservation and environmental sector is an expanding area for employment opportunities. This programme aims to secure graduates with employment in high level policy and practice positions, as well as more technical posts involving habitat management and species conservation, working with local people. Potential employers include local, regional and national UK government departments, voluntary organisations and the private sector, as well as international conservation and environmental organisations. Many also go on to postgraduate studies.

    UK requirements for international applications

    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.
