The Integrated Environmental Management programme has been developed through a cross-disciplinary approach drawing on expertise from within the University of Bath and from cutting edge practitioners within business, commerce and industry.
The University of Bath is one of the UK's leading universities, with an international reputation for research and teaching of the highest academic standards. It has a distinctive approach that emphasises the education of professional practitioners, fosters high achievement, and promotes original inquiry and innovation in partnership with business, the professions, public services, and the voluntary sectors. We were ranked ninth in The Independent Complete University Guide, April 2009 and The Guardian University Guide, 2010.

The University's teaching standards are high, and have been measured objectively. In the latest assessment by Assessors from the Quality Assurance Agency, the University scored the maximum 24 points for its teaching in economics and politics, mathematics and statistics, molecular and organismal biosciences, physics, and pharmacy. It scored 23 points in Sport and Leisure and Education, and other departments scored well.
In October 2003 the University was audited by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education, which looked at the quality of opportunities available to students, and the academic standards of the awards that the University offers.
The QAA, whose mission is to safeguard and improve standards in higher education qualifications, confirmed that broad confidence (the highest category) could be placed in the University of Bath.
The value of our research portfolio (grants and contracts) as at 31 July 2008 was £100 million. The 2008 RAE profile consolidates Bath's position as one of the top research universities in the UK.
The University's 200-acre campus at Claverton combines excellent facilities and green space. Its lake and trees, and its view of the city of Bath give it an attractive feel.
The University of Bath's facilities are world-class. Its sports facilities include:
An Olympic size swimming pool; indoor and outdoor tennis courts; all-weather pitches and athletics track; a wide range of clubs and societies; instruction and tuition, and free use of many of the facilities. Its Sports Training Village was funded by a £21 million grant from Sport England. Around the central pedestrian parade are grouped laboratories, lecture theatres, the Library and Learning Centre, shops, refectories, the Students' Union, bars and accommodation blocks. The Library & Learning Centre has over a half a million books and over 400 networked PCs, and is open 24 hours a day for most of the year. The annual spend on books was 1.4 million pounds.
Close links with business
The University emphasises the relevance of its courses to the needs of potential employers. Two-thirds of its undergraduate students are on four-year courses with one of the years being spent on external placement.
The University devotes some of its resources to setting up businesses based on the research its staff carry out. It has extensive links with industry, public services and charitable organisations. Over 2,500 organisations are involved with the University in hosting placements for undergraduate students and 143 companies collaborate with the University in research programmes. The University has developed a range of collaborative programmes designed specifically to meet business needs, for example an MSc in Responsibility and Business Practice. This has been developed in collaboration with the New Academy of Business founded by Anita Roddick. The University is supporting the development of a new Science Park at Emerson's Green in collaboration with the University of Bristol.
The University of Bath has strong ties with the rest of the world, with staff and students from more than 100 countries. Over a fifth of its students have non-British nationality.
An example of its overseas links is its relationship with Shandong University in China. The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bath signed a formal framework agreement of co-operation between the two universities earlier this year (2004). She also visited other leading Chinese universities.
