Course details
Course UCAS code: F750
Qualification type:
  • Msci (Hon), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This is an advanced research year, particularly suitable for those students wishing to pursue a career in research. Our course offers a flexible applied science degree to enable you to understand the mechanisms and processes underlying our interactions with the natural environment. The course encompasses the environmental aspects of geography, biology, chemistry, maths, physics, and geology. This diversity is reflected in a wide range of optional module choices, so you can develop a broad scientific understanding but also tailor the course to your interests as you progress. We understand that theoretical learning should be accompanied by practical application; therefore, field work is an integral part of the course, with four field courses available in Devon, Sweden, the Czech Republic, and Malaysia.
In the first year you will develop your understanding of key scientific principles and how these are integrated and interrelated. The science behind climate change and influences on water chemistry are key topics in the second year. A wide range of optional modules allows you to study specific topics of interest to you. Your research project is the only core module in year three often linked to current research being carried out by our academic staff. Optional modules include field courses on Arctic Ecology in Sweden and Environmental Pollution in the Czech Republic. The fourth year is an advanced research year that enables you to develop a confident, scientific approach to answering questions through theoretical analysis, the formulation of hypotheses, practical experimentation, data analysis and communication of results.

    Highly recommended as Nottingham is such a great city, surrounded by lovely greenery. The university is also extremely huge!

    The University of Nottingham provides you with an amazing opportunity to not only learn about your subject of interest but also learn more about yourself and experience things you never would get the chance to outside of a university like it. The staff are experts in their subjects, the societies provide a wealth of interesting hobbies to get involved in and you will have the chances necessary to develop the skills you need to pursue any career you want (as long as you take the chances).
