We will advise you of your study plan - the running order and availability of the modules - when you are invited to enrol.

If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this may not be offered. In addition, where demand is high, some modules may be subject to a cap.

Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma stage: You must complete four modules:

  • Critical Issues in the Environment

  • Environmental Management and Audit

  • Environmental Policy and Law

  • Environmental Pollution and Management Strategies

Also two optional modules from the list below:

  • Environmental Noise Assessment

If you are taking the Climate Change pathway, instead of your two optional modules, you will take:
