A guaranteed internship is included in three new degree programmes that offer students professional experience and the first step on the career ladder

The degrees, which will start in October 2014, are designed to give students hands on experience of the professional world alongside their academic studies and so increase their attractiveness to employers.  The programmes are:

MSci Geography (Professional Experience)

MSci Environmental Science and Technology (Professional Experience)

MSci Ecology and Conservation (Professional Experience)

These four year degrees lead to the qualification of MSci and incorporate master’s level teaching in the final year. In years 1-3 they follow the same routes as our standard BSc courses allowing students to opt in or out of the final year.

All programmes include:

  • An internship of up to three months during year 4 in a relevant industry, public sector or charitable organisation, organised by Lancaster Environment Centre’s unique Enterprise and Business Partnership team.
  • An optional module on setting up an environmental business in year 2
  • The opportunity to work with a business for their year 3 dissertation

Entrance grades will be AAA at A level for MSci Geography, AAB for Environmental Science and Technology and AAB for Ecology and Conservation.
