The student experience

The undergraduate major programme in Environmental Earth Systems Science has an emphasis on faculty-student interaction beginning in the first year of study and continuing throughout the programme.  Field-based studies abroad are conducted at the conclusion of the first and third years of study, and are designed to acquaint students with modern techniques in the environmental Earth systems science, and provide students with real-world experience.  Students can choose to conduct study abroad in an international Earth science programme, and in their final year are encouraged to conduct independent research or complete an industrial attachment.
