The Applied Science in Environmental Management and Planning programmes are offered by the Department of Geography and fall into two broad categories: research and taught.

Taught courses usually involve a range of core and option course elements and the submission of a dissertation. Independent study is supported by seminars and lectures. Assessment may be by coursework, as well as by written examinations and a dissertation.

Research students will focus on a specific area of research, meeting regularly with an academic supervisor who oversees the work.

Whether you are taking a taught course or studying for a research degree, you will have an academic supervisor who will provide guidance and advice throughout your course.
