Environment and sustainability

From investigating people’s attitudes towards the environment to understanding how nanotechnology can enhance future solar power solutions, environment and sustainability researchers take a truly collaborative approach to tackling some of the biggest issues facing our world today.

Our courses explore some of society’s biggest environmental and sustainability challenges, and examine the transformative ways in which we can tackle them.

93 per cent of our postgraduate taught students and 100 per cent of our postgraduate research students go on to employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2022, HESA).
