OVERVIEW

Would you like to work with key issues and challenges associated with land tenure, land value, land use and land development in the ‘making of places’? Master of Science (MSc) in Surveying, Planning and Land Management with specialisation in Land Management combines theories and methodologies from social and political science with property economics and legislation. It also explores the limits and opportunities of technology in dealing with land related issues, such as e-governance. Hence, it offers a complex, interdisciplinary, and solution-oriented approach in dealing with land management issues.
The aim of the programme in Surveying, Planning and Land Management with specialisation in Land Management is to provide knowledge and competence in dealing with land management issues, building adequate land administration systems as well as spatial governance as an infrastructure to implement land-related policies and land management strategies.

Land administration systems are a basis for conceptualizing rights, restrictions, and responsibilities. It deals with managing relations between people, policies and places in support of sustainable spatial development. Land management is therefore concerned with the governing as well as the governance of land. It includes careful consideration of the interaction between public authorities, private developers and businesses, land owners, and citizens.

It takes two years to attain a master degree in Land Management, and during this time you will meet a wide range of teachers who will present you with new knowledge in key areas.

The educational programme is internationally oriented, and attracts Danish as well as international students. Furthermore the educational programme offers the opportunity of an internship or/and an external study as well as study trips inside and outside Denmark during the 3rd semester.

Golf is a significant global sport played on diverse areas of land within both urbanised and rural landscapes. Golf course managers are in essence custodians of this land and therefore have a responsibility to manage these facilities for both the game of golf and the environment. Golf courses offer wide ranging economic, social and environmental opportunities when managed appropriately but face many challenges in the 21st century if they are to survive in a highly competitive social and recreational market place. Competing forms of leisure, economic factors and other constraints continue to impact on golf globally. Course managers have to be mindful of these factors, which directly impact on the resources needed to sustain surfaces and meet customer expectations.

This part-time MA Sustainable Golf Course Management, awarded from the University of Central Lancashire, is an innovative course which encompasses a multidisciplinary approach to contemporary golf course management. The course aims to develop students’ critical and analytical thinking to enable implementation of effective and efficient management practices. The MA will encourage debate and critical evaluation within an environment that develops holistic understanding of international issues.

Year 1

Theoretical Perspectives of Sustainability

In this module you will develop your knowledge and understanding to define sustainability. This will be used to investigate the impact of practice on global resources and the environment. You will critically appraise economic, social and environmental issues in the context of golf course management.

Management of Performance and Quality

In order to successfully manage a golf course in a challenging economic climate you will need to understand customer expectations and demands. This module will develop an understanding of both objective and subjective quality criteria for golf courses to allow you to provide positive customer experiences.

Contemporary Agronomic Research and Development

Research into agronomy, technology and management is of critical importance if the industry is to continue to adapt to modern pressures and challenges worldwide. This module will explore the research path including laboratory to field trials and, ultimately, application into practice. Case studies will be explored where research and development has made or could make a significant impact to management practice.

Year 2

Resource Efficiency and Management

This module will assess the impact that resource management can have on the overall success of the business. Managing physical, financial and human resources efficiently will allow responsible use of finite resources whilst maximising quality output and minimising waste.

Golf Course Policy and Strategic Planning

Management practices can have a significant impact on both the landscape and the fundamental design of a golf course. Within this module you will review the importance of managing and planning structural and physical developments on a golf course through the implementation of a course policy document.

Research Methodology and Design

This module provides students with the essential personal, organisational, management, theoretical and statistical skills needed to work at Postgraduate Level. It will explore research philosophies, research process and design and the process of questionnaire development and design. The module will develop skills in advanced data organisation, presentation, dissemination and problem solving.

Year 3

Masters Dissertation

The dissertation is a triple module and allows students to design and conduct a substantial piece of independent, supervised research related to the field of study. The dissertation is an independent piece of academic work which allows the student to identify and work in an area of interest to them and manage the research process to agreed deadlines.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course commences in September each year. So what does it take to be a Production Manager? An individual who can multi-task, be dynamic, communicate well and stay calm under pressure. Someone who is creative with budgets but keeps a sharp eye on the bottom line; someone who knows enough about Health and Safety to protect the cast and crew but not detract from getting the right shot; someone who knows about the best locations at the best price - and who knows production from start to finish!

This course combines intensive training with practical experience on fiction films, TV Entertainment shows, documentary and animation films at the NFTS and industry work experience placements.

Career Progression

Most production managers are freelance, moving from contract to contract, and may find themselves working anywhere in the UK, or even abroad.

New NFTS graduates are sought-after and typically find employment soon after completing their courses. NFTS alumni are some of the most successful people working in UK film and television today, and many of our students make contacts while at the NFTS which continue in the professional world.
