Our Alumni Stories

Who We Are

The Graduate School for the Environment is a collaboration between Lancaster Environment Centre, The Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, and Rothamsted Research.

  • Lancaster Environment Centre

    Students of the environment at Lancaster have always been a step ahead. It was here that the world’s first department of Environmental Science was established, and it was here too that some of the first students anywhere across the globe were able to graduate with a full degree in Ecology.

  • Rothamsted Research

    Rothamsted Research has always led from the front. It was here, following our establishment in 1843, that the foundations for modern scientific agriculture were laid and that the principles of crop nutrition were first developed.

  • Centre for Ecology & Hydrology

    Every day at the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, some 360 scientists and 120 postgraduate students are engaged in world-class, innovative, independent and interdisciplinary research into terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems and their interaction with the atmosphere.
