    Are there any environmental scientists out there who can tell me what their typical day is like?

    I really like the sound of the degree and I'm now starting my research to see if it's right for me.

    Anything would be greatly appreciated

    People who do environmental science don't always end up in the field. If you go into research you may spend some time in the lab and on field visits but also travel to conferences and maybe do some teaching. If you work for a govt or private organisation you may do some policy work and spend more time talking to people and doing analytical stuff or still be lab and field based. There are also a whole host of careers that use your transferable skills that may not be directly relevant to what you do at uni. Talk to your advisors and careers service.
