Environmental Science with a Foundation Year

**About This Course** How can we change our behaviour to reduce the effects of climate change? What controls the Earth’s natural systems? What might our landscape look like in the future? How do I write a good science report? Prepare to explore it all. On your Foundation Year you’ll gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for undergraduate-level study, all within a nurturing, supportive environment. With this under your belt, you’re then able to progress to the BSc in Environmental Sciences – or other courses, such as Geography or Geophysics depending on your grades and preference. Whether you’re a mature student looking for a new career, a student who needs to strengthen their science knowledge before progressing to a BSc degree, or an international student whose qualifications are not accepted for direct entry, our Foundation Year is a great route onto our science degrees. **Overview** In your Foundation Year you will study the physical, chemical, and biological surroundings here on Earth. You’ll discover how these natural systems are interlinked, and the effects of human influence on them. You’ll think about questions including: • What are the greatest challenges for sustainable oceans? • What did our landscape look like in the past and what might it look like in the future? • How do I develop myself to optimise my graduate prospects? In addition to exploring these big questions, you’ll develop the essential skills you need to prepare for undergraduate study. Once you’ve successfully completed your foundation year you are guaranteed to transfer to the BSc Environmental Science. Depending on the modules you’ve taken, your grades and your preferences, you could instead transfer to a different BSc/MSci course in the School of Environmental Science. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
