Postgraduate study

We teach and research topics of global environmental importance and tackle tough questions across natural and social sciences. We offer a wide range of PhD projects to students from the UK and overseas. We have opportunities funded by research councils, charities and industry and projects for self-funding students and those with scholarships from their home country.

We also offer an MSc by research and taught degrees.
