Description

The concept of sustainable development, which aims to harmonise the economic, social and environmental dimensions of development strategy, is now a key feature of policy-making by governments throughout the world. A major challenge is to change patterns of production and consumption to achieve sustainable development objectives without compromising the future viability of natural and human systems.

The course comprises eight assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project. The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through practical work, written examinations, case studies, essays, presentations and tests. These provide the tools required for the group and individual projects.

The group project is an applied multi-disciplinary team-based activity. It provides students with the opportunity, whilst working in teams under academic supervision, to take responsibility for an industrially-orientated consultancy-type project. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets. Industrially-orientated projects have support from industry and other external organisations.

Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IELTS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever.

180 (Grade C)
TOEFL iBT® test: 92

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
