what our students say
"I studied for my MSc in Sustainable Environmental Management at Plymouth University. I thoroughly enjoyed the flexibility of the course, which enabled me to study such diverse subjects as environmental law and ethics, marine policy and Geographical Information Systems. I chose to do my research dissertation on strategic environmental assessment and gained a considerable amount of experience developing my own ideas and concepts and making contacts. I subsequently gained employment as Biodiversity Action Plan Officer with Scottish Natural Heritage, largely on the basis of my knowledge of international environmental policy and my dissertation topic. I am now working for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs as a Senior Policy Officer with responsibility for Biodiversity Action Plans.
I thoroughly recommend the programme - apart from the academic side of things, there was also a great postgraduate social life!"
