Environmental Sciences BSc Welcome Pack

Welcome to Environmental Sciences BSc 2022.

Welcome to BSc Environmental Science.  We are looking forward to meeting you all in September and hope that this welcome pack gives you some insight as to what to expect.

During your first week at the University, you will be bombarded with yet more information but don’t panic – the course team are more than happy to talk you through it all. We will meet you all as a group at the start of the first week and we will also meet you individually to talk through the course, University and pretty much anything else you need to discuss.

You will also be assigned a personal tutor who will be your main point of contact throughout your first year. Please feel free to email me at any point prior to your induction week with any concerns or simply if you want to chat about the course.

You will be enrolling on a topical and globally relevant degree in a post COVID-19 world where focusses are shifting to the maintenance of resources (inc. water), pollution, climate change and the links between wildlife and emerging diseases. The natural environment is of vital importance to all of us with its future and sustainability being high on both the political and public agendas. Human impact is placing increasing stress on the environment but at the same time there is a growing awareness of the problems and of the need to find solutions.

Join us on this inter-disciplinary programme where we will provide you with a science-based degree focusing on important concepts and principles for understanding the natural environment. There is lots of field and lab work, and you will have the opportunity to go on residential UK trips as well as getting involved in research and undertaking skill development. As the subject of environmental science is very broad the programme is structured with several specialist modules available through the programme.

We can’t wait to meet you in September, see you soon!
