University of Leeds
Geographical Information Systems (distance learning)
This innovative programme combines expertise from the universities of Leeds and Southampton, both renowned for their Geographic Information Systems (GIS) teaching and research. It builds on the University of Leeds' considerable experience in successfully delivering taught Masters programmes in GIS and draws on the University of Southampton's expertise in teaching GIS in non-traditional settings. The programme is designed to meet a wide range of requirements, covering areas of specialisation as diverse as business, environment, health and planning and is well-suited to an international audience. It offers open distance learning for people working in commercial or public sector organisations, who need core training and skills development, as well as those who simply want to study in their own environment and at their own pace. You'll benefit from tutor support, including regular newsletter updates, and online discussion with fellow-students, and will have access to online resources at both universities.
Modules include: Principles of GIS; Using GIS; GIS in the Workplace; and Spatial Analysis and GIS.
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 2 assessments which are due for submission at the end of each three-month study period.
