MLE/DipLE Land Economy/Rural Surveying
The programme is concerned with the management of land and its resources, rural businesses and their associated activities and interests. The knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines-for example, land management, law, planning, finance and economics-are integrated to meet the future challenges facing landowners and land managers. Knowledge and understanding of traditional land management (agriculture, forestry, sporting) and emerging land uses (for example, environmental and conservation activities, countryside access and leisure, steading conversions, and telecommunication masts) are combined with the business skills necessary for successful decision-making and business diversification.
