    The MSc/MPhil in Environmental Change and Management (ECM) aims to produce students with a broad appreciation of all aspects of the management of people and institutions in relation to environmental change. As part of the Environmental Change Institute the MSc/MPhil in Environmental Change and Management emphasises cross-cutting, interdisciplinary approaches to the critical environmental problems of our time, especially climate change and adaptation, energy and lower carbon futures, and ecosystem conservation and management.

    The programme trains young international leaders in all aspects of environmental change, sustainability and management, preparing them with the critical concepts and skills to be competent and aware decision-makers. The programme is broad-based and cross-disciplinary, with teaching staff from a wide range of departments as well as visiting lecturers from business and industry, government and NGOs, and a variety of research and policy institutions.

    The course is also supported by a vibrant network of alumni, spread across more than 60 nations around the world. Graduates inhabit a wide range of careers, as civil servants, NGO leaders, bankers, engineers, lawyers, scientists, policy advocates, and entrepreneurs. Over the past 20 years, ECM-trained environmental leaders have come to occupy influential positions in government, mainstream and new business sectors, international environmental research, and local civic enterprises.

    UK requirements for international applications

    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.


    program_requirements

    If you hold non-UK qualifications and wish to check how your qualifications match these requirements, you can contact the National Recognition Information Centre for the United Kingdom (UK NARIC).
