The Postgraduate Certificate in Climate Change aims to meet the needs of both climate change practitioners and those hoping to move into this fast-developing sector.

The programme provides a comprehensive advanced-level grounding in many areas of climate change and an opportunity to reflect on practice at both individual and corporate levels. As the programme is offered through part-time, evening, face-to-face study, it provides a distinctive opportunity for practitioners to combine study with a continuing career.

In the compulsory programme, you gain an informed understanding of the key issues in the three main areas of science, policy and business, by engaging with academic, professional and popular literature. You are able to critically evaluate scientific scenarios for future climates and landscape impacts, assess the effectiveness of different policy approaches, and determine suitable business responses to the climate change challenge.
