The term “Environment” can refer to any area and space around an object. Postgraduate Programmes in Environment are usually concerned with the Natural Environment - that is all living (and in some cases non-living) things that are found on our planet, as such you could specialise in many aspects of the environment from the Built Environment to a more ecological perspective like Environmental Conservation.
There is a good range of Postgraduate Programmes in Environment available in the UK, and there are also some dedicated faculties, for example the School of Environment and Development at the University of Manchester, which offers five different Master’s programmes in this subject matter, all available to study both full or part time.
Entry to Postgraduate Programmes in Environment
Successful applicants will generally be expected to hold a good bachelor degree (second-class Honours or above) from a recognised institution. In some instances, applicants could be accepted onto an Environment postgraduate diploma programmes if they exceptional experience even if they aren’t graduates, with a view to progressing on to a Master’s programme. Check with your preferred institution to see what qualifications are required.
IELTS scores of 6.5–7.0 or TOEFL scores of 100-107 are usually needed. Because of ongoing changes in the law we advise international students to regularly check the UKBA website to make sure they can fulfil the necessary requirements. Most individual institutions also have useful information on the Tier 4 requirements for international students, and can offer assistance in terms of student queries about their specific English language requirements.

How much will it cost?
A one-year taught master’s programme can cost anything between a few thousand pounds to well over £10,000, although there are different rates according to whether you are a European Union (EU) or non-EU student. Applications for funding or scholarships must be made well over a year in advance (information on the various institutional scholarships is available from the British Council website) and funding should always be arranged before you leave your home country.
