Units of study

Unless otherwise stated, these Environmental Science units of study are available only to students through the postgraduate Environmental Science and Law program and are not available to the wider University community. Compulsory units are presented in italics. Note that you can take units from other programs to flesh out your chosen environmental award course as long as these units are relevant to an environmental degree and that you also complete the required core units. Please note however that we do not control the timetables of these units and therefore clashes may occur with our units.

To assist in planning, where relevant, units are identified as

  • (I) intensive (about one week)
  • (C) concentrated (about seven weeks)
  • NB: Units in italics are compulsory

Students can assume other units of study run for a full semester unless officially informed otherwise.
