Environmental Management and Planning graduates offer professional advice on how to make towns, cities and rural areas better places to live and work. They are experts who understand the impact on the environment of construction and regeneration and also the need for effective management of waste, energy, contaminated land and socio-economic issues. This programme draws on the School's strengths and specialisms in: environmental technology and management, particulary waste and energy management and development management. Year 1 is the foundation year and gives an introduction to the core skills and " ground rules" such as urban studies, legislation and economics, land surveying and natural resources. Year 2 narrows the focus towards the key themes related to planning and sustainable development: environmental management, planning practice and socio economics. Level 3 provides the opportunity for you to gain practical work experience in a relevant position and organisation in Semester A, followed by further specialisation in core skills such as environmental planning, geograpical information systems (GIS) and sustainable development. Year 4 is the Honours year and allows you to develop your own specialisation, through your choice of dissertation subjects and specialist modules e.g. waste management, sustainable land use, or energy resource managment.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
