Courses are not isolated from the real world and many are supported by research groups working on cutting-edge programmes. Our aim is to prepare you, whether coming from university or industry, for a challenging career in one of the growing range of industrial and research sectors that now routinely make use of the GI technologies. To enable this you will need to develop specialist skills, acquire experience of spatial problem solving and develop a range of personal skills. To help you achieve this taught courses involve a varied selection of case study work, tutorials and lectures led by centre staff and senior visiting lecturers from industry.
This programme includes an individual research thesis which provides an opportunity to study a problem in some detail, whilst some of the courses also include a group design project allowing the realism of industrial projects to be introduced. The course is offered in a modular form to facilitate a part-time mode of study.
The course comprises eight assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project.
The early part of the Geographical Information Management programme is structured around a series of taught modules consisting of lectures, tutorials, demonstrations and practical classes taken during the autumn and spring. Each module forms the sole unit of study for a period of two weeks. The course examination is sat during January. An opportunity to undertake a project in the style of a consultancy is offered on the full-time programme and is conducted from February to May. The period May to August is devoted to an individual project. Additionally, the taught component of the programme is supported by visits and seminars. The individual modules are linked through case studies and practical work so that different aspects of the geographical information technologies are integrated.
The Group Project experience during the course is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. It provides students with the opportunity to take responsibility for a consultancy-type project while working under academic supervision.
The project involves the application and integration of component technologies:
The Individual Project is either industrially- or University-driven. Students select the individual project in consultation with the course team. It provides the opportunity to demonstrate independent research ability, the ability to think and work in an original way, contribute to knowledge, and overcome genuine problems in relation to the management of the earth's resources. It also offers students the opportunity to work with the types of organisation they will be seeking employment with on successful completion of the course.Modules
This course comprises 8 modules, a group project and an individual project.Core

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.
