Course Summary

Climate change is a multifaceted issue, with relevance across a wide range of economic sectors and policy areas. The Postgraduate Diploma in Climate Change offers you the chance to take a truly interdisciplinary approach to your study in climate change, engaging with academic, professional and popular literature. The course is designed for both climate change practitioners wishing to further develop their understanding of key issues, and those hoping to move into this fast-developing sector.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates can pursue a career in business, environmental management, local government, policy work, and in environmental groups and charities. Possible professions include nature conservation officer, environmental consultant, or geographical information systems officer.
