The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in addressing teaching, learning and assessment (circular 26/95) list three key features, one of which is "[the] opportunity for and assessment of: development of ...values, motivation, or attitudes to learning." It has been reported (Fyfe, 1996) that the develop of attitudes to learning varies according to whether the programme of study is "Arts" or "Science" based. As students progress through Arts programmes they develop a deeper approach to learning whereas students following Science programmes develop a surface approach. In his report Fife makes no reference to interdisciplinary programmes such as those related to the study of the environment which are interdisciplinary. This study sets identify an appropriate method for recording students' approach to learning, to establish base line data for four environmental orientated undergraduate programmes and to investigate the influence of a period of work-based learning on the development of attitudes to learning.
