Sustainable Leadership

Through our tradition of experiential learning in and from nature, you will explore your approach to leadership for sustainability, in a highly flexible programme that involves a couple of week-long visits to our campus in the heart of the famously beautiful Lake District. Discussions with peers striving to be sustainable leaders, triggered by remarkable guest lecturers and facilitated by world-class tutors will help you explore the future of your vocation as a sustainable leader. In a 6 day residential in the Lake District you will be challenged and supported in a highly inter-disciplinary exploration of both sustainability and leadership where orthodoxies will be deconstructed so you can more clearly identify a pathway for your future as a leader of social and organisational change. You will be guided by a relevant expert to develop and pursue a topic of inquiry as your own independent study, which will form a 3rd of your qualification.

Entry requirements

The course is intended for people with professional experience in fields related to sustainable development who seek to develop their leadership capabilities. Therefore, you must be able to demonstrate an interest in taking leadership for sustainable development and may be required to undertake an interview as places are limited; in line with the University Admissions Policy, it is usual that entrants to this postgraduate award will provide evidence of study to level 6 undergraduate level and have at least two years' work experience in a management or supervisory category. The University actively encourages applications from of all ages, of any gender, ethnic and/or social background and from students with disabilities. You will be required to evidence English language proficiency standards where UK GCSE examinations in English (or their equivalent) have not been passed. These standards are normally represented by a minimum overall band of 6.0 on the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) test, with no sub-test band below 5.5, or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Internet-based test score of 90/paper-based test score of 575. If studying the part-time option and you need a visa, then you cannot be in the UK on a Student Visa under the Tier 4 regulations.
