Teaching and learning

Equipping students with the skills they need for their careers and also their lives is core to what the University does. 'Green skills' are a key part.

Green skills are the knowledge, abilities, values and attitudes needed to live in, develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society.

Why are teaching and learning important?

One of the most impactful ways the University can make the world a better place is by ensuring that students who pass through our doors leave with the knowledge and confidence they need to influence the people and systems they go on to encounter for the better. For people and the planet.

Every subject area has the potential to incorporate social responsibility and sustainability, or 'green skills'.
