EP course is designed and structured with the emphasis on its practical use and on the development of critical employment skills.
There is no single path or rigid career track for students studying environmental policy and our students follow a wide range of careers. Our graduates go on to be lawyers, civil servants or to work for international or national agencies. Many go into management careers, and others enter public service with local or national organisations.
To help students to transition to their planned careers, the MPhil in Environmental Policy offers a mentorship scheme pairing each student with an established environmental policy practitioner. Our network of mentors is constantly growing and it includes practitioners in a wide range of organisations, both in the United Kingdom and abroad.
In addition, the Department of Land Economy runs an Employment Programme open to all current Land Economy students. The Programme is designed to assist the students to find their ‘ideal’ job position upon finalising their studies.
At the University level the Careers Service maintains links with relevant employers and takes into account employer needs and opinions in the services which it provides for students. The Careers Service also allocates a Careers Advisor to each College, Faculty and Department to act as a point of contact.
