Will this course suit you?

Sources: UCAS & KIS

Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses

Course description

These courses examine the natural environment and human impact upon it. The courses produce science graduates with an interdisciplinary understanding of the complexity and uncertainty of environmental systems, and who have the skills and competencies to observe, measure, model and manage these systems. This is achieved through the integration of theoretical, practical and field-based approaches. Interdisciplinary in nature, the courses embrace ecology, geography, glaciology, meteorology, hydrology, oceanography, geology, pedology and environmental chemistry, and consider present-day environmental problems such as climate change, natural hazards, environmental degradation, conservation, planning, recreation, tourism provision, and international development.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The recession has been difficult for some environmental scientists, with jobs and funding cuts, so bear that in mind when you look at the figures. This is also one of those subjects where graduates don’t usually go to London to work, so if you want to work in East Anglia or the South West – or overseas – this might be a good subject. Graduates tend to get jobs in the environment, in surveying and as lab technicians, but, like a lot of other subjects, if you want a job in research, start planning to take a doctorate. The stats also include a small number of oceanographers and meteorologists.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not classed as 'graduate level' in the stats, but many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
