Short courses to increase chances of being accepted onto Environmental Science 2021Watch
I'm applying to do Environmental Science at Liverpool Hope Unviersity.
The choices of short courses I have come across are:
Earth Science - "identify and describe the Earth, its structure and explain processes that affect change in the structure and composition of the earth. "
Environmental Studies - " introduction to Environmental Studies providing a broad based grounding in environmental and conservation issues, and a foundation course for higher learning."
Conservation and Environment Management - "develop a foundation for managing conservation of different environments."
I personally think that the Earth Science course seems like the best fit to give me a nice all round reintroduction to geography and geology, but some opinions from students that have done courses like this or take a similar university course would be greatly appreciated!
Hey I honestly don’t think paying for an introduction course is neccesary at all. As long as you can convey your passion for environmental science in a personal statement for example is more than enough. My reason being is that when you begin your environmental studies you aren’t expected to know much - you’ll receive what the university prepare as an introduction to the subject the same as any course. But if you would feel more comfortable and can afford to then ofcourse do it but I really do not think its neccesary. I applied as a mature student and it doesn’t in any way hinder your application you’ve just decided later on what your passion is
That's really good to know and actually very reassuring. I was thinking of doing it simply because I did double Science in school and received a B for Core Science and a D for Additional Science. All my other grades are above a C except that one! I thought if I were to do a course and do well on it I might help the assessor be able to see that it was just a fluke grade!
Yeah completley get you! As I say its defo what you feel more comfortable with because I can see how passionate you are about getting a place. You could even speak with admissions and see what they say. But as long as you met the entry requirements and show your passion in the PS I think you’d be good to go massive good luck!
