Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Rural Planning and Environmental Management

Format: Campus

Program Description:

As land comes under increasing pressure and sustainable development part of every day language, rural land use planning and environmental management is developing as a specialism. This degree programme synthesises both topics to provide graduates with a flexible training in both specialist and generic issues which will enable them to work in a wide range of spatial planning contexts. Students will have a dedicated teaching room with an emphasis on continuous assessment and student led learning. Teaching is exclusively with other postgraduate students.


This 12 Month full-time intensive programme offers a MSc accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute and Royal institution of Charted Surveyors.

International Student Requirements:

The minimum requirement is a first degree (equivalent to a British second class Honors degree). Evidence of English Language Proficiency may also be required. The Programme Director will consider applicants with non-standard qualifications, particularly those with substantial work experience. We have one intake each year in September. Late applications may be asked to wait until the next intake should the programme coordinator feel there is insufficient time to consider the application. Prospective students are advised to apply as early in the year as possible to secure a place. Overseas students wishing to study on the course are particularly advised to apply in plenty of time to allow visa applications to proceed in a timely manner
