This is an advanced research year, particularly suitable for those students wishing to pursue a career in research. Our course offers a flexible applied science degree to enable you to understand the mechanisms and processes underlying our interactions with the natural environment. The course encompasses the environmental aspects of geography, biology, chemistry, maths, physics, and geology. This diversity is reflected in a wide range of optional module choices, so you can develop a broad scientific understanding but also tailor the course to your interests as you progress. We understand that theoretical learning should be accompanied by practical application; therefore, field work is an integral part of the course, with four field courses available in Devon, Sweden, the Czech Republic, and Malaysia.
