This multi-disciplinary Masters programme is designed for those intending to pursue careers in environmental project management, as professional planning staff in private or public sector organisations concerned with the design and implementation of environmental policies (especially in developing countries), or those working on environmental issues in international agencies or academic and research institutions.
Our graduates go on to successful careers in international organisations, government ministries, academia and research institutions, non-governmental organisations, banks and other financial institutions.
Students on this programme will take four core courses, two optional courses and complete a substantial independent piece of work, normally in the form of a dissertation. A pre-sessional refresher course in economics is also available for those who wish to revise their economics. This non-credit bearing course takes place during induction week.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
