Thanks to ever-increasing employment opportunities in Environmental Sciences – which brings together fields such as sustainable development, climate change, renewable energy, and conservation biology – this interdisciplinary area of research at the University of Exeter is becoming an increasingly attractive area of study for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The College of Life and Environmental Sciences at Exeter offers several degrees designed to provide students expertise in both practical and theoretical aspects of biology and geography. This multidisciplinary education produces graduates who can change the future of our planet by measuring, evaluating, and making decisions about important environmental issues. 

Undergraduates can enroll on their BSc Environmental Science program, which also has ‘With Professional Placement’ and ‘With Study Abroad’ options. Exeter also offer a four-year MSci Environmental Science program for students who would like to undertake additional research. Graduates can choose from their MSc Applied Ecology, MSc Conservation and Biodiversity, MSc Conservation Science and Policy, MSc Data Analysis for Life and Environmental Scientists, and MSc Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture. All of these courses are taught at Exeter’s attractive Cornwall campus.

On these courses, students will have the opportunity to work closely with Exeter’s world-leading academics, who are internationally recognized for their research, while undertaking classes and conducting their independent research projects. Most of these degrees also involve extensive fieldwork opportunities; immersive experiences which enable students to employ the scientific techniques they have learned in the classroom, and to network with potential collaborators and future employers, making Exeter an overall superior choice for students with interests in environmental sciences.
