Do you want to understand and help address some of the most significant threats to our natural environment and ecosystems?

Our Environmental Science BSc programme will develop your knowledge of physical and ecological processes, understanding of critical global challenges including climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation and sustainability, and allow you to explore novel management and policy interventions to mitigate environmental hazards and restore damaged ecosystems. Jointly taught by the School of Geography and School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences, compulsory foundational modules are supplemented a range of exciting optional modules in each year, providing flexibility to tailor your study towards your interests and career goals. You will have opportunities to develop both subject-specific and transferable skills including laboratory analysis, statistical methods, spatial analysis and geographical information systems (GIS), effective communication and problem-solving, unlocking a wide range of employment options after graduation. You can also explore key environmental and ecological concepts through fieldwork in the UK and destinations further afield such as the Netherlands and South Africa, before designing your own research project in your final year with guidance and support from our experts.

This programme is based in the School of Geography on QMUL’s Mile End campus in the vibrant heart of east London. You will join a learning community of students and academics, drawn from over 35 countries across the world. Each student has an academic advisor who supports their studies and transition to university. Our student experience and engagement team provide further pastoral care and social opportunities outside of the classroom. The School’s dedicated Careers Consultant offers one-to-one advice and coaching meetings for students and hosts regular employer events on campus that often feature returning graduates from the School.

TESTIMONIAL I chose QMUL as I wanted to be at the forefront of research in the environmental field, and studying environmental science in the capital city has proved to be invaluable. I enjoy being part of two Schools: this has allowed me to get to know a wide range of students and staff, as well as feeling like I am getting the best teaching in specific areas.
