Course summary

The Foundation Year in Science is offered as an entry route to a biology, biomedical sciences, environmental or public health degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. You enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly to one of our three-year degree courses in this subject area. The number of students who progress to degree study are very high and in fact have gone on to become some of our most successful graduates.


Our environmental science course will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience to tackle environmental challenges and forge a career that lets you make a positive impact on the world.

Mixing essential theory with real-life research expeditions and field training, our environmental science degree gives you the transferable skills to succeed in the environmental sector.

Whether you choose a three-year (BSc) or four-year (MSci) study route, you’ll develop both lab and field skills that will enhance your understanding of the processes taking place on earth – and how they impact on our planet.

With a heavy focus on field trips and work experience, you’ll also have plenty of opportunities to put your skills into practice. You'll develop valuable employment skills that will let you pursue the environmental issues and career avenues that matter to you.

Course content

This programme will provide you with thorough and in-depth specialist knowledge and technical skills to become a proficient environmental science professional that responds to academic, professional and employment needs. The interdisciplinary nature of the subject areas means you will be introduced to fundamental environmental sciences as well as aspects of environmental studies. You will gain key knowledge in environmental management, sustainability and pollution control as well as essential skills in environmental monitoring and assessment.


The assessment strategy is designed to both facilitate and to assess learning. Assessment relies on your knowledge being used in context and applied to the assessment task. You must be able to use this knowledge appropriately, problem solve, critically evaluate and make judgements. Through the learning and assessments, you will become increasingly skilled at making connections between subjects to develop a more holistic view of environmental sciences.


As a graduate, you will be well-qualified and may progress to postgraduate study in a related discipline, graduate training programmes or to a research degree.

You could also be employed in the public and private sectors such as environmental and sustainability consultancies, environmental industries, non-government organisations (NGOs). You would also be qualified for a role in the growing field of communicating and popularising science.
