A Bachelor's degree with a 2.1 (Honours) in geography or a related subject, e.g. environmental sciences or ecological sciences. Relevant work experience is viewed positively and is taken into account particularly for candidates whose 1st degree grade is slightly below our requirement. We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
Modules include: Principles of GIS; dissertation; using GIS; quantitative and spatial methods; GIS and environment; geographical information and planning; qualitative research methods; digital image processing for environmental remote sensing; programming for geographical information analysis; advanced skills; environmental assessment; work placement/research placement (GIS); web-based GIS; programming for geographical information analysis (core skills).
Assessment is through coursework with no exams. There is a mix of essays and reports, the latter usually based on analysis of real world datasets. Most modules have an assessment part way through the semester and then a further assessment at the end.
