Course content

You will explore a variety of practice-based topics across a full range of environmental management and business disciplines. The programme has been designed with input from consultants working in environmental management and is focused on giving students a practical understanding of the systems, processes and legislation required for businesses to implement and operate sustainable practice.

There is a specific emphasis on implementing and auditing sustainable supply chains. Core modules aim to provide students with a detailed understanding of management systems and auditing, sustainable procurement and legal compliance. Competence in these areas should be attractive to larger organisations, especially those with an externally certified Environmental Management System (e.g. ISO 14401 or EMAS), complicated supply chains or where legal compliance requires on-going management and dedicated resource (e.g. large manufacturers or waste management companies). There will also be a focus on enhancing communication and project management skills.

You will undertake your workshops in training rooms that are bang up-to-date with design features, touch screen electronic white boards and high speed wifi; housed across three stunning Georgian mansions.

What's more you have lots of other facilities on this dedicated university campus including latest books, journals and online data in a truly modern library, an IT centre, a student zone complete with Costa Coffee, a gym and much more, oh and if that’s not quite enough for your needs we are just across the road from the beach - brilliant for creativity and inspiration.
