Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies at UEL This programme, which concentrates on a wide range of current Environmental issues, is based at CAT (Europe's leading Eco centre) and offers a unique combination of academic study with practical experience that will equip students with skills that are becoming increasingly sought after in all areas of professional practice. The programme is delivered through 'blended learning'; this means the programme content is delivered using a variety of learning and teaching methods including people based, paper based and web based. This approach allows students to choose a flexible pathway through the programme. Each part of each module can be completed either by attending at CAT or via web based leaning. This form of delivery provides a great deal of flexibility for students who can choose a pathway through the programme, in not only what they study but also how and where they study.
