Welcome

Welcome to the School of Environmental and Geographical Sciences (EGS). We provide a
world-class education within a research intensive environment. Members of academic staff in the School are leading international researchers in their chosen fields, which include tropical ecology and conservation, various applications in spatial science, agroforestry and atmospheric science.

Our research-led teaching uses innovative techniques to equip students with the specific expertise necessary for a successful environmental career, along with the transferable skills needed for independent and lifelong learning. We provide a truly international university experience. Through our research and teaching, we engage with a range of environmental organisations and government agencies in Malaysia and across south-east Asia, as well as in Europe and Australia; we also have active teaching and research links with our campuses in the UK and China. Fieldwork is central to much of what we do, and we offer residential field courses to tropical islands and rainforests where we study terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems. 

Vision 
As part of its strategic plan, the School aims:
  • To become a leading centre for the creation and dissemination of environmental knowledge in Southeast Asia 
  • To play a leading role in sustainable natural resource management in Southeast Asia 
  • To maximise opportunities for international exchange, for the benefit of both our students and our staff 
  • To be inclusive, ensuring equality and diversity across all of our activities

We invite you to explore our geography and environmental science courses today!

FAQ

What is Environmental and Geographical Sciences? 

Environmental and geographical science have a common focus on studying the environment, its components, and the interactions between humans and the natural world. However, they do differ in many ways. 

Geographical science comprises the study of the Earth’s physical features, climate, human populations, and the relationships between them. It looks at spatial patterns, explores cultural and social phenomena and analyses the interactions between humans and their environment. 

Environmental science focuses more on understanding the environment and covers ecosystems, natural resources, and the impact of human activities on the planet. In the search for sustainable solutions, environmental science often combines biology, chemistry, physics and earth science to address environmental issues.
