Environment and sustainability

Short courses and postgraduate qualifications

The world we live in is changing rapidly and programmes in urbanism, sustainability, ecology, wildlife conservation and the environment are more important than ever. 

Whether you wish to study for personal interest, professional development, or are looking to gain a qualification, we have a course for you.

Short courses

Short courses cover a range of topics such as animal behaviour, plant biodiversity, survey methods and mapping tools. Some of these courses can be studied for credit, which means they can count towards a recognised qualification such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.

Courses for graduates and professionals

Our world-leading programmes have an international perspective and scope and draw upon Oxford University's interdisciplinary expertise.
