If you have a strong interest in how life on Earth interacts with the physical environment, and how we humans have positive and negative impacts on these relationships, then this may be the course for you. Our degree will give you a detailed understanding of how ecosystems function on a global scale, and of human impacts on these ecosystems. It will also consider practical, legal and economic aspects of environmental management.
Here is why we think Aberystwyth is a great place to study a degree in Environmental BioSciences:
- Enthusiastic and experienced staff keen to share their expertise in environmental research
- Regular site visits and study weeks, giving you the opportunity to get hands-on in the field
- Access to some wonderful locations and habitats, including coastlines, estuaries, woodlands, and hills
- Conveniently located for access to the Dyfi National Nature Reserve, and Snowdonia and Brecon Beacons National Parks
- We are an industry leader in education and training for environmental careers
Studying BSc Environmental BioSciences will give you the skills and knowledge that you need to follow a career in environmental regulation, environmental consultancy and ecological conservation.
A high proportion of Environmental Biosciences graduates would be expected to pursue careers in conservation or environmental management. Many graduates of the old Environmental Science degree scheme now work in environmental consultancy, environmental protection or conservation. However, a degree in Environmental Biosciences does not restrict you to pursuing an environmental career. The transferable skills developed on this degree scheme, including group work, written and oral communication skills and data analysis, equip students for a wide range of careers. Previous IBERS graduates have pursued careers in accountancy, banking, retail, transport, teaching, local government and management. A significant number of IBERS graduates progress to postgraduate study and many pursue research careers.
We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
