Environmental Management & Sustainability with Professional Placement Year
On successful completion of your second year of study, there is the opportunity to take a Professional Placement Year to gain invaluable experience working in the environmental and sustainability sectors.
Employers value the contribution that students make to the workplace and are therefore very keen to take on placement students for this period. Potential opportunities include environmental consultancy, working in environmental management and sustainability roles for a company/organisation, and working in environmental laboratories.
If you would rather complete your degree within three years but still gain additional work experience, there is also the option to take a Professional Work Placement module in your final year of study.
During your Professional Placement Year, you will be allocated a visiting tutor who will liaise with you and make visits to you at the workplace or arrange virtual meetings, particularly if you are working outside of the UK.
To follow the Environmental Management & Sustainability (with Professional Placement Year) programme, you should select UCAS code F852.
