This programme creates genuinely transformation learning. It challenges and supports you to develop the way you respond to key issues and understanding of business responsibilities. It enables you to take effective action in the sustainability and responsibility areas.
With a combination of change, leadership and sustainability, you will embark upon a unique journey of discovery.
The programme is studied part time over two years and is based around a series of eight intensive workshops, each of five days' duration.
The programme requires you to engage in practical and experimental actions between workshops, using action research processes. You will be fully supported by tutors and peer learning groups to apply your learning from workshops to your daily professional settings.

The programme fee for the Masters in Sustainability and Responsibility is £16,000. This is exclusive of VAT and accommodation costs.
Action Research incorporates a wide range of practices and ideas with a strong pedigree in the fields of organisational change and community development. Action Research invites you to develop a discipline of thinking, personal reflection and testing ideas through action experiments.
Simply put, it asks you to become an active researcher into your own life, work and organisation. You will be encouraged to experience with your activites and approaches at work, in response to the topics raised on the programme.
Each workshop includes some time in small peer learning groups and in the whole group, helping you become clearer about the questions that lie at the heart of the work you wish to do in the world.
Our experience is that this combination of approach, sustainability and responsibility topics and the theories of learning, change and leadership is what makes this such a powerful and practical learning opportunity.
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 MSc is a demanding modular programme aimed at participants with significant work experience rather than at recent graduates.
Participants will usually hold a first degree or equivalent, though applicants with significant professional experience and no undergraduate degree will also be considered.
The programme is anchored in practice and you will be expected to reflect on and explore your own organisational, community or professional activities between workshops. You will therefore need to demonstrate that you can provide settings in which such exploration can take place.
Appropriate TOEFL/IELTS scores may be required for those whose first language is not English.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
