 NRI has introduced a NEW Climate Change BSc (Hons) in 2021

If you’re passionate about the environment, global warming, food shortages and growing the green economy and want a career that makes a difference in the world, our climate change degree is for you.

Climate change is the defining environmental challenge of our time. Join the climate response by studying a degree that gives you the knowledge and skills you need for a career working to combat the climate emergency.

Our climate change degree is the only one of its kind in the south-east of England and is taught by academics whose research is helping people around the world deal with the effects of climate.

This programme has been designed to give you specialist scientific knowledge of climate change, as well as an understanding of the social, legal and economic issues associated with emission reduction and climate adaptation. You will gain practical skills in carbon accounting, risk assessment and geographic information systems, which will give you a head-start in your career as these are increasingly important as organisations, large and small, make commitments to reduce emissions and are forced to respond to climate impacts.

You will be studying under the guidance of leading experts from our Natural Resources Institute (NRI) at the University's Medway campus. NRI has a long history of addressing global challenges around the world and has won 3 Queen's Anniversary Prizes for Higher and Further Education for its innovative, environmentally focused research.
