Course Summary

The MSc Environmental Consultancy is strongly interdisciplinary and practical, and draws on our wide-ranging and well-established links with environmental consultancies, industry, national and local government and the IES. Your studies here (two-time winner of the International Green Gown Awards) will be academically rigorous and relevant to the professional skills of environmental consultants, and will equip you to make informed decisions in finding solutions to a range of environmental challenges. You will learn how to make positive contributions to existing environmental consultancy practice, and respond to and initiate change in line with contemporary and emerging issues. Students on this course come from a range of different backgrounds. You may be a recent graduate, or an experienced environmental consultant seeking advanced qualifications. This rich mix of students and the differing skills they bring, offer a unique and interesting learning environment for all. This course is accredited by The Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES). Students can also exit with PGDip award.

There are many opportunities for environmental consultants. They're needed in a wide range of industries and sectors, including oil, chemical, energy, waste management, transport, water, construction, metal, engineering, agriculture, mining and quarrying. Central and local government, charitable organisations, retail, commerce and manufacturing sectors also employ environmental consultants. Graduates from this course have gone into many interesting and exciting areas of work, and the course has an excellent employment record. While many have found roles with large multidisciplinary environmental consultancies, others have used their learning, skills development and contacts from the professional practice placement to become environmental campaign managers, waste managers, wind-farm planning specialists, protected species experts, planning and development consultants, and many other roles.
