Our Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on sustainability of food production, energy and ecosystems. Study at the University of Warwick's School of Life Science, ranked 2nd in the UK for Agriculture.
Escalating rates of environmental and climate change are forcing us to re-evaluate our management of agricultural and natural habitats. The competing demands on agricultural land for food production and for bioenergy provision must be reconciled with environmental stewardship and mitigation of climate change. This MSc provides a timely and integrated perspective on environmental bioscience, management, societal matters and regulation as these relate to issues such as sustainable production of food and provision of ecosystem services.

Born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration, the University of Warwick is a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. We’re constantly highly ranked amongst the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities. The 2014 Research Excellence Framework placed us 7th among UK research universities, meaning you’ll learn alongside academics on the cusp of new thinking.
“Being a campus university, the university is a hub of activity and a great place to both study and socialise. From the start, there are opportunities to get involved with societies and sports clubs. The first week of the course provided a welcome introduction to the course, new surroundings and course mates which was a great way to ease into life at Warwick.
The best thing about the course was that all lecturers talk from a wealth of professional and academic experience and remain at the forefront of research in their respective fields.
The degree refined a large number of transferable skills that have been important in the work place. The regular deadlines refined my organisational and time management skills, whilst developing my ability to use both written and numeric data to support arguments. Above all else, this course and its material gave me the opportunity to discuss the challenges associated with increasing demand on agricultural land for food production and how these challenges may be overcome. In being able to freely discuss the courses material with each other in class, it led to both new thoughts of thinking whilst also reaffirming my enthusiasm for wanting to work within the environmental sector in some capacity.
My job as an environmental consultant involves working on various types of civil engineering projects and addressing their impact upon a variety of environmental issues such as; air, land and water contamination, flood risk, waste management and recycling.”
“The first day of the course was very relaxed, you get to know your fellow students, have tours around the campus and meet a few of your lecturers. The highlight of my time at Warwick was having the opportunity to undertake a three month placement at the Canal and River Trust. This provided me with invaluable industry experience that has significantly benefitted my CV. The time that I spent at the Trust allowed me to communicate with multiple organisations whilst working on ecological management plans, and provided me with contacts that are helpful to offer opportunities of future employment.
The degree has a very diverse stance, and the coursework can be tailored to topics of your personal interest. The university offers you the freedom to investigate topics that you have a passion for, which also allowed for me to learn about a range of environmental issues that other students were researching, and were not within the syllabus.”
