Environmental Sciences

The School of Environmental Sciences is one of the longest established, largest and most fully developed Schools of Environmental Sciences in Europe. Our holistic approach to teaching and research, integrating physical, chemical, biological, social and geotechnical sciences into the study of natural and human environments, is truly a modern philosophy for the new millennium.

Geography

Our strong Geography offering is focused around an interdisciplinary approach and research-led teaching. This ensures we are always at the forefront of the discipline and can teach using relevant, contemporary examples.

The Schools of Study at UEA teach thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students each year across the four faculties of our campus in Norwich.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Environmental Sciences.

If you haven’t already, check out our School pages on the UEA website.

In the meantime, don’t forget to Register Online to get access to your timetable once it becomes available, and log in to Blackboard our virtual learning environment.

Once you have registered online you will also need to attend a registration event (unless you are an undergraduate home student living in UEA accommodation, since you are registered automatically when you pick up your room keys)

  1. Dear Student,

    We are looking forward to you joining the School of Environmental Sciences (ENV). We view our relationship with each of our students as a partnership, and do our best to give you the highest quality education and impart the excitement of our cutting-edge research. In return, we expect you to be an active participant, to provide us with feedback, and to help us make our teaching even better. 

    This website contains information concerning your induction programme and other information you will find useful prior to your arrival.

    I’m sure you will enjoy yourself here in ENV – we are a friendly, academically engaged and hard-working School. I look forward to welcoming you to the School when you register in September. In the meantime, enjoy the remainder of your summer.

    With best wishes,

    Professor Kevin Hiscock

    Head of School, School of Environmental Sciences

Steps to Success - Getting started in your School of Study

Step One

You will have received an email from UEA confirming your place. Follow the links to register online and set up your IT account, username and password.

Step Two

Go to E:Vision to view your personalised timetable information. There will be UEA wide events for all students as well as our School events and activities.

Step Three

Go to the SCI Student Zone.This is our area for all Science students to find common and School only information. It is an important reference area not only in your first few weeks but also during all your time here. Right now, your School areas on the SCI Student Zone will also have more information about any essential or recommended reading for your course (if needed before you arrive) or if you have optional module choices to make in your first year, there will be some more information about that. Most Schools have a ‘New Student Information’ area but do take time to browse the other tabs, including the general Science Student Information tab. 

Follow these instructions once you have registered online:

  • Go to https://portal.uea.ac.uk/
  • Select BLACKBOARD from the 3 orange buttons towards the top of the screen
  • Type in your UEA username and password, and select Sign In
  • At the top right of the screen select SCI Student Zone

Step Four

Double check you have done all of above! Keep regularly checking your timetable and School Student Zones up to and during arrival week as sometimes things are added or rooms can change.

Please note that this process does not apply to Foundation Year students.

New first year undergraduate students are only required to select their ENV 20 credit maths module.  The other 100 credits will be automatically selected for you.

ENV offers three first-year modules to provide training in maths and statistics:

  • ENV-4013Y Quantitative Methods (20 credits)
  • ENV-4014Y Advanced Quantitative Skills (20 credits)
  • ENV-4015Y Mathematics for Scientists A (20 credits)

If you are enrolling on BSc / MSci Geophysics and BSc / MSci Meteorology and Oceanography will automatically be assigned to ENV-4015Y before you arrive. All other new ENV students will need to make your module selection by Friday 14 September. To help you make your selection please refer to the document attached to this section.

Once you have decided on your module of choice you will need to select this using Online Module Enrolment. Guidance is available in our help document (see useful documents in this section).

 

Please take a look at your induction programme below. Your schedule is available on e:Vision.
