When you arrive at the Graduate School, you will be surrounded by researchers from across the natural and social sciences all contributing to a culture that cuts across traditional disciplines to deliver new and effective solutions.
The Graduate School for the Environment is deliberately organised to be a melting pot of ideas, interests and methodologies. Anthropologists mix with environmental chemists. Ecologists rub shoulders with geologists. Hydrologists swap ideas with social scientists.
As one of our students, you will find yourself working as part of one of these focussed research groups and you will be challenged to consider the value of your training or research within a wider multi-disciplinary team. Right from the start, you will learn to think differently, bouncing ideas off your colleagues, picking up new techniques, exploring unexpected avenues and setting new goals.
It’s an exciting way to conduct research, and it’s a great preparation for the world of work, where the ability to apply your expertise in close cooperation with colleagues from different disciplines is extremely valuable.
