New professional partnership for Geography

An exciting new educational partnership has been agreed between the Department of Geography and the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA). IEMA

The agreement will give students access to a huge range of resources to advance their employability, including links to professional consultants, environmental management companies and access via a variety of media to the latest developments in the field.

Over 100 undergraduate and postgraduate students have already become members of IEMA, joining over 15,000 professional members of the organisation.

Dr Brian Baily from the Department of Geography was instrumental in setting up the agreement. He said: “This is a great opportunity for our students to engage with environmental professionals. Currently a considerable number of our students go on to work in the environmental sector, for companies such as Skanska and Atkins, and this agreement will enable even more to pursue careers in the industry.”

Dr Jonathan Potts, also from the Department of Geography, said: “Membership of IEMA is now required for many environmental jobs and our students will benefit from these key links with environmental management practice in the real world.”
