Careers and your future in Environmental Sciences

Our course is based on the 15 “most wanted” skills identified from a national employers’ survey by the Natural Environment Research Council. 

When you graduate you’ll be equipped with the skills to choose from a variety of different careers such as environmental practitioners, environmental analysts and environmental managers. The specialist “streams” also open up different avenues for our students such as roles in toxicology, public health and environmental engineering firms.

You’ll develop your employability skills on our Leadership for Sustainability module. Brunel’s on-campus Professional Development Centre also offers workshops on employability. These cover networking, psychometric and aptitude testing, interview skills, teamwork exercises and developing your CV and cover letters.

We work closely with the Environment Agency, who’ll be offering placements to our students. Our advisors in the Professional Development Centre will help you apply for placements in such areas as environmental protection, environmental management and consultancy, environmental compliance and sustainability, and environmental research. These placements will provide you with valuable work experience and contacts.
