Mix Your Own Environmental Masters

(via Naomi Martin...)

Bournemouth University have this year launched a range of innovative Masters Degree Short Courses in the Environmental Science field, allowing students to study part time, and choose their units of study. This new range of short courses has been developed to specifically target recent graduates or those working in Environmental or Ecological fields and looking for additional development within their industry. The courses, each specialising in a different field, offer students a contemporary style of learning, including fieldwork where appropriate, to allow students to develop or apply their knowledge in a real setting to provide a robust platform on which to build their skills. The course areas on offer, include; Aquatic Invasive Species, Field Skills, GIS for Environmental Managers, Introduction to Statistics in R, Marine Planning. Each short course requires the person to attend the university for 3-4 days, where there will be a mix of theory and practical sessions. There is pre and post course work and students can take an optional academic assessment to gain 20 academic credits at postgraduate level. Based on the completion of three short courses, the students would gain a recognised Postgraduate qualification. For more information on the short courses visit

(For the sake of balance I have to point out that the Environmental Policy MSc at imperial and Bath MSc now moved to Ashridge are also of course excellent, as is the Forum for the Future programme :)
