    What is the programme about?
    This environmental science programme is about understanding (a) the parameters which effect the environment and (b) identification and quantification of quality indicators. In the first year of the programme, students develop their interest in the fields of environmental science through practical and field trip activities. In the second year of the programme, students focus more on specific ecosystems, the use of equipment to identify pollution and the control of pollution incidents. This programme is over 50% based in Field & Laboratory Analysis (FLA) and students engage in a series of field trips specific to ecosystem monitoring.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    This programme is ideal for students who have an interest in the biological sciences and the environment. It is particularly suited to those students with a determined and inquisitive nature as to the fate and impact of bio-toxins on our ecosystems and wish to work out in the field coupled with laboratory analysis.

    Top 3 Reasons
    1. This programme introduces learners to environmental sampling and analytical techniques for the complete analysis of a ranges of samples namely air, water and soil from different ecosystems.

    2. Learners learn the concepts of different ecosystem management and sustainability.

    3. The learner from the skills obtained can obtain employment in the public section and private chemical and pharmaceutical sectors in order to ensure compliance with Environmental EU regulations.
