Queen Mary University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Are you fascinated by the interactions between physical and ecological systems, and how these relate to human activity? This interdisciplinary degree draws on the expertise of two schools – Geography and Biological and Chemical Sciences – to offer a distinctive programme. You’ll explore themes such as ecology, diversity and evolution, conservation, environmental pollution, river science and environmental engineering. In the process you’ll develop advanced practical skills by analysing samples and simulating environmental processes in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Explore the world with us on fieldwork in places such as the Netherlands , Canada, Croatia and South Africa, as well as UK-based fieldwork, including opportunities right here in London. Option modules in the second and final years allow you to direct your study towards your aims and interests. In the final year you’ll design your own project with guidance from our experts, developing the skills to become a researcher in your own right.

Modules are assessed through a combination of coursework and examination. Coursework may include extended essays, short reports, posters, oral presentations and group work. Students must also complete a final-year independent study project of 10,000 words, based on an original study of their choice.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
