Be inspired by our selection of undergraduate courses, which cover all aspects of the world we live in. Our courses allow you to choose between a 3 year BA/BSc degree (with or without a year in industry), or a 4 year integrated masters degree (with a year of international study).


Some jobs demand a postgraduate qualification, others simply the best candidate. Either way a postgraduate degree will ensure that you are able to maximise your potential in the career of your choice.

Housing services

We have a variety of outreach activities available for pupils of all ages, in topics relating to human and physical geography, geology and environmental science.

In addition to running a programme of larger events throughout the year, we also try to accommodate requests for visits, talks and workshops from individual schools.

We are particularly interested in supporting schools who have large cohorts of students from the first generation of their family to consider higher education.

ICT services

The Faculty IT support team was established in 2009 to provide a consistent IT service across the Faculty, and to provide a mechanism to implement University IT initiatives in the Faculty of Environment.

Faculty IT provides support around 3 key areas:

  • Microsoft Windows systems
