Environmental Sciences work placements

You can carry out a beneficial placement within your Environmental Sciences degree* giving you the experience to create a stand-out CV.

Our Environmental Sciences BSc and Environmental Sciences MSci programmes both offer a unique compressed degree in which you can carry out two placements over three years where you’ll earn a graduate level salary. You can also carry out a traditional one-year placement within a four-year degree.

You’ll have the potential opportunity to work within government organisations who help create better places for people and wildlife, as well as support sustainable development in the UK.

As a result of our strong industry connections, the Environmental Agency offers placement opportunities to students on our Environmental Sciences BSc and Environmental Sciences MSci courses as well those on our Environmental Management MSc.

You’ll really benefit from having this professional experience in your field of study as it makes you a much more appealing candidate to future employers.

All in all, you graduate from Brunel with a strong scientific background and industry experience with the skill to analyse, evaluate and propose potential solutions to environmental problems across the geographical spectrum.

* Please note our Environmental Management MRes and Environmental Sciences MRes do not offer a work placement option.

The research infrastructure at Brunel, including the labs at CSEF and ETC, the support to publish open access journal articles and participation in research conferences definitely contributed to me landing a job at Whirlpool.

I am studying Environmental Sciences BSc, so working for the EA is a wonderful opportunity to enhance my CV and to learn more about the job roles available to me once I graduate.
I went to a conference with Shell, and after talking to people who work there, I have seen that there are many roles that I can go for, such as an HSS officer. Even with the skills I have learnt on the course, I could become a GIS programmer or a researcher.

I wanted to upskill myself and Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design MSc was the perfect course because it was an amalgamation of three areas that are really important to me.
The mix between sustainability, entrepreneurship and design is truly unique. I would recommend Brunel to others because of the amazing teachers who are passionate about their field and because of all the opportunities you get through Brunel.
