The course

Our Global Sustainable Development degree enables you to investigate the contemporary problems that our governments, scientists, philosophers, educationalists and charities are grappling with, and challenge you to explore possible, practical solutions. You will also have the opportunity to complete professional certificates in: Digital Literacy, Coaching and Sustainability Auditing.

The GSD course examines crucial challenges in areas such as health, ageing, food security, hunger, energy, labour, climate change, and production and consumption patterns, from a variety of perspectives offered by experts engaged in real-life research.

Practitioners from the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities spheres will explain how they approach and analyse these issues. You’ will learn their techniques and acquire the research, analytical and rhetorical skills necessary to critique the various approaches. You will also examine the possibilities for bringing together sustainability efforts and development policies in a politically sound, economically fair and socially democratic setting.

Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for 2018/19 academic year is £9,250 and tuition fee for 2019/20 academic year is yet to be confirmed and is expected to increase subject to government policy decisions. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases will be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).
