This programme builds upon the HNC, which forms the first year of the HND programme. The course provides educational and training opportunities for potential and current employees in the environmental sector.

It aims to raise levels of awareness for today's environmental concerns, teach related skills and knowledge and encourage a holistic approach to modern sustainable development and land management. This is achieved not by studying environmental issues alone, but by looking at them in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals and competing governmental priorities.
You will gain a solid understanding of global climate systems, resource economics, freshwater environments, Environmental Management Systems, monitoring and analytical methods for environmental science, planning and development control, biology, biodiversity conservation and more.

The programme offers an educational experience that is comprised of face to face teaching, site visits, workshops, self-guided study, seminars, visiting speakers and residential field trips.
This course provides students with key transferable skills and enables an articulated progression route to higher levels of learning from Honours Degree to postgraduate awards. It is assessed through a range of methods including practical, essays, reports, online tests, posters, presentations, podcasts, wiki development and exams.

Upon successful completion a Higher National Diploma is awarded from the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
