Dear Environmental Scientist,

You may be reading this from a few different perspectives:

  1. All of this is totally new to you and you want to find out more about what the subject involves.
  2. You already know quite a lot about environmental issues and want to understand the science behind these.
  3. You are simply fascinated in the environment around you!

It doesn’t matter what your reasons are – work at your own pace and enjoy finding out more about this exciting subject!

Students often tell us they have chosen Environmental Science because they want to take a subject which goes with Geography or Biology but are worried there might be an overlap between the subjects. There will be some overlap but this should help you with the other subjects, and not simply repeat what you are doing in other lessons, as each subject will cover overlap topics in a different way and help with your revision for any/all of these subjects. Making sure that you complete work set for deadlines also teaches you good time management skills and helps you progress to being an independent worker.

We hope you enjoy the materials we’ve included in this booklet and we hope these will help you work on skills you will need to be successful on the course!

The teaching and support was absolutely brilliant, they couldn’t have done anything more or anything better, if I had any questions my lecturers would always stay behind to help me if I needed it and their emails were always open, it was second to none. This college is the best by far.

Amber Searle, BTEC student

College is definitely worth all the effort you put in, you get to meet lots of different people and it’s amazing.

Ebony Puttock, A Level student

My experience with the teaching and support was really well, as I’m dyslexic, they helped me a lot and I’ve achieved good grades, so I’m really pleased.
