Environmental Science, BSc Hons

I think there are a lot of opportunities with environmental science as it is a very current topic throughout our modern world. The personal tutors could respond more often but apart from that the course is really interesting and the lecturers always respond instantly!

This course was based on the Sutton Bonnington campus until 2 years ago. However, the lecturers are all still based on the other campus (that is 40 minutes away) and rarely come to university park. This means much of the course this year has been online and not up to value for money. We have been given excuses as to why the teaching is still online relating to covid-19 or lack of space, however these seem unlikely to be true. The teaching feels rushed and disinterested in expanding knowledge or challenging the students.

Some great lecturers, once you have more choice of modules in 2nd year it becomes an even better course more specific to your interests, 1st year can be more split

I can't express enough how supportive and engaging the faculty at the School of Geography are. It's clear that each staff member loves their job and is dedicated to bringing out the best in their students.

By member631854 On 1st June 18

The course in the first year can be a bit frustrating as you can't choose majority of the modules but after the 1st semester you have freedom to choose and that's when it gets really fun. My personal tutor is great as their always ready to help and reply to emails quite fast. They help out a lot if you have any problems with coursework and overall paper work and even overall student life tbh. The teaching can sometimes vary depending on the modules chosen but overall it's quite good and there's various field trips you can go on.

I was never given a personal tutor. The lecturers themselves differ immensely on a scale of competence. I don't doubt their knowledge, but their ability to teach or impart wisdom is very troublesome. Don't get me wrong, some are good. But, the majority I have encountered overcomplicate simple concepts, make students more confused, and don't get you any closer to a topic question. Most lecturers take ages to answer emails, yet you get spammed by surveys, student service and SU emails which are irrelevant. The course content is varied and you can choose from a lot of modules, which I like. However, some modules are available on the distance-learning programme, but not on the regular course, which is extremely baffling. I think the modules would help you if you want to pursue academia, but other than that I cannot see how it is hugely applicable to the job market today.
