The School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management was disestablished on 1 January, 2017.

Following a review, the school was merged with the School of Earth Sciences to create the new School of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

“My job in a nutshell involves providing advice to businesses on operating sustainably and reducing their environmental impact".
 
“I get to do lots of travel. I spent seven weeks in Africa through my job with Ensight on a Rio Tinto mine site as part of a project to develop an energy strategy for them".
 
“I was drawn to Environmental Management because it was quite an open-ended degree – it was broad in that it covered a range of different topics which could lead to a range of different career options rather than be funnelled into one thing".

“It was also a really good chance to positively contribute to global issues – issues such as climate change and sustainable development are really big problems globally and I saw Environmental Management as a way of working in these areas.”
