Environmental Science (with Foundation Year) - University of the West of England

BSc(Hons) Environmental Science brings together knowledge from a variety of fields to give you a deep understanding of the environmental challenges facing the world today. Carry out your own investigations in our specialist labs, and use the latest mapping software in our dedicated computer suite. Gain exposure to the skills and technology employed at the forefront of environmental science. Learn to analyse and interpret complex data, and pioneer environmentally sound, scientifically robust, practical solutions. Undertake work placements, volunteering roles, field-based work and residential trips in natural and urban environments, in the UK and abroad. Go on inspiring expeditions to the threatened forests of Madagascar or diving on the coral reefs of Cuba. If you choose the sandwich course option, you’ll spend your third year working with a public or private sector employer, applying your knowledge to current environmental issues. Our graduates take their skills into internationally-renowned organisations such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Others go into industry, working with employers such as Thames Water, the Environment Agency, Wessex Water, Atkins or charities like the Woodland Trust. Some become film-makers, or take part in conservation projects around the world, everywhere from the Seychelles to Panama. You could also continue studying to MSc or PhD level.
