Environmental Management

This is a broad based and flexible course that enables students to pursue a range of environmental careers, from environmental specialist to a manager with an environmental remit. Alternatively the course, or modules within it, can provide valuable continuing professional development (CPD) should you be a professional wanting to refresh or expand your skills in environmental management. This can be done by taking the whole course or individual modules as stand-alone CPD items.

Course modules

Trimester 1 and 2 - We provide you with core knowledge and skills to work as an environmental professional, in particular environmental systems and management tools, instigating and managing change, data handling and reporting. You'll study relevant and up-to-date material, benefitting from specialist inputs by speakers active in the environmental industry.

Optional modules give you the opportunity to develop a greater depth of knowledge in several of these components, for example energy and wastes management, ecosystem services and sustainability principles.

Trimester 3 - The third Trimester is devoted to your independent research project where you'll work with your supervisor or a topic of particular interest to you. This might be a project working with an industry partner and will allow you to demonstrate your environmental understanding in an area relevant to your interests and career; from biodiversity to business.

Assessment methods

You'll tackle a range of assessment types, all with a strong emphasis on applying the skills you learn during your course to workplace scenarios. These include writing technical reports, presentations and the use of electronic media, such as developing a specialist wiki. There are no written examinations.
