It is specifically designed for those atmiddle management in the travel and tourism industry who are involved in eco-tourism in the UK and/or international markets and who wish to develop their understanding of eco-tourism as they engage with eco-tourism projects.

More about this course

This course addresses key issues in the field of eco-tourism, including the rationale for eco-tourism and the role of government, the economy, culture and environment. As such it provides a comprehensive grounding in international best practice in both developing and delivering successful eco-tourism destinations.

The course is delivered by experts in the field of eco-tourism.

This course enhances your practical work experience and career prospects through the requirement to engage in the production of aneco-tourism work-based project proposal. This presents an extremely valuable opportunity to engage in real-world practical research, framed by academic thinking, thus developing your competencies in a business environment.

This course also offers the opportunity to engage with site visits to eco-tourism projects and experts from the eco-tourism field who will be involved in class-based delivery of teaching and learning.

The first module entitled Eco-Tourism: Theory and Practice will be assessed by a piece of coursework that integrates and ensures coverage of the module’s learning outcomes (approximately 5,000 words). This will be submitted online in week 15.

The second module entitled Developing a Project Proposal for Eco-Tourism will be assessed by two pieces of coursework. The first will comprise a research proposal (approx. 1,000 words) to be submitted online in week 5. The second assessment will comprise anEco-Tourism project proposal and reflection (approx. 4,000 words). This will be submitted online in week 15.

Modular structure

The course comprises of two 20 credit modules set at Level 7. In summary: Module 1 is delivered as a face-to-face delivery block of 5 full days (6 hours per day); module 2 is delivered as 2 full days face-to-face tuition and 2 days of project site visits and 1 day of cohort project tutoring by distance learning (total 10 days delivery = 30 hours + 15 hours for scheduled assessment periods per module) = 45 hours per module.

The first module entitled Eco-tourism: Theory and Practice examines the economic, cultural and environmental impact of eco-tourism through face-to-face teaching delivery in London. This is delivered across five days as a block at the beginning of the first semester of entry to the course. Students then have the remainder of the 15 week semester to complete the integrative coursework assessment remotely.

The second module is entitled Developing a Project Proposal for Eco-Tourism. Its face-to-face content and site visits are also delivered at the beginning of the course (in the first semester of study) as part of the block delivery in London with two days devoted to tuition and two days to eco-tourism project visits. Students then continue their tuition remotely via distance-learning cohort tutorials during their second semester of study with one day’s remote cohort tutoring provided to support their project proposal development.

The MSc Eco Cities course addresses how cities can be planned and built to promote low carbon lifestyles. You will explore how ecological development can mitigate climate change and promote more sustainable ways of living.

The course addresses the serious and complex questions of how cities can be planned and managed in a more resource efficient way. These include:

• What is a low carbon and ecological (sustainable) city?
• How can city and regional planning effectively guide sustainable development?
• Can cities be planned and built to promote low carbon lifestyles and foster ecological development that can mitigate climate change?
• How can urban areas adapt to climate change?

You will gain a critical understanding of the forms of development that badge themselves as sustainable or low carbon and will develop the skills to take forward innovative environmentally friendly urban developments that are sensitive to the needs of sustainable spaces.

Distinctive features:

• You will travel to a global city and work in depth on a ‘live’ planning project and/or governance issue. Previous destinations have included Xiamen and Jakarta.

• The course is recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) as a 'specialist' masters, allowing those who have completed a three year RTPI recognised undergraduate spatial planning degree to complete the RTPI's educational requirements for membership.

Structure

The programme is offered full time (12 months) consisting of 180 credits. It is fully modularised.

You will take core options to the value of 60 credits, optional modules to the value of 60 credits, and then undertake a piece of independent research (Dissertation) also worth 60 credits.

The programme is divided into two parts:

Part one comprises a teaching programme of core and option modules over two semesters. Options are available in the School of Geography and Planning, the School of Engineering and the School of Architecture.

Part two comprises an individual dissertation on a topic selected in consultation with members of staff. Whilst there are few constraints on the choice of topic, it must address at least one of the core course themes of the Eco-Cities programme.

Teaching

The programme will be delivered through a mix of lectures, seminars and field study visits/empirical data collection.

The formative learning experience is particularly fruitful when you undertake the Live Project as staff will be alongside you in the field, and in your dissertations when you will have regular meetings with your supervisors on the progress of your research.

A particularly notable feature of the course is the Live Project in which you will have the opportunity to visit an ongoing eco-city development. This is a core module and provides an opportunity for you to undertake an overseas field study visit and work in-depth on a ‘live’ planning and/or governance issue in an eco-city.

You will work in groups and work closely with a partner organisation and will deploy skills in problem-definition; draw upon, and develop, knowledge of the planning, political and cultural context of the development; and appreciate the operational context within which a report will be delivered to the partner organisation.

Assessment

Formative assessment takes place in modules on an ongoing basis and will take a variety of forms including essays, group reports, individual reports, presentations and multiple choice tests.

Career prospects

It is estimated that there are about 170 eco-cities (towns) under development in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa, and the Pacific Area. In China alone, more than 90% of cities have expressed their interest in developing a new eco-city or to apply the principles of eco-city to their existing urban area.

The scale of current and future eco-city development and its global reach means that the programme will appeal and offer value to:

• Those who are currently engaged in eco-developments and wish to develop their professional expertise and academic knowledge in a School of Geography and Planning.

This unique transdisciplinary course, open to people from all backgrounds, offers a special focus on contemporary social sculpture, ecological citizenship, connective eco-social practices, cultural activism, expanded art practices and transformative, creative action. It enables you to explore strategies of engagement, agency and the relationship between imagination and transformation. The programme also makes special reference to the proposals and legacies of Joseph Beuys, Schiller and Goethe, as well as other pedagogies of transformation such as Joanna Macy's and Paulo Freire's. It introduces theoretical and philosophical frameworks, with a special emphasis on phenomenology and experiential knowing; explores the relationship of social sculpture to ecological sustainability and offers practice-based research methodologies and creative strategies as the basis for developing individual and collaborative social sculpture processes, interdisciplinary expanded arts and reflective social practice.

The MA is Social Sculpture is, with the MA in Sound Arts, one of two taught postgraduate courses for socially-engaged artists, composers and transdisciplinary practitioners currently offered by the School of Arts at Oxford Brookes University. These MAs share two core modules in Creative Strategies and Phenomenological Methods of practice-based work. These shared modules enable cross-pollination and potential for collaboration between social sculpture and connective practice practitioners and those working in the field of sound arts. The MA in Social Sculpture is linked to the Social Sculpture Research Unit and is part of a thriving post-graduate research culture. There are opportunities to volunteer in social sculpture projects like University of the Trees: Lab for an Eco-Social Future.

Why choose this course?

The MA in Social Sculpture is an internationally renowned programme, running since 2006, linked to the Social Sculpture Research Unit at Oxford Brookes. A dedicated team of international specialists and emerging practitioners delivers innovative cross-disciplinary and socially-engaged creative practices that many students have described as 'life changing'.

-Participating in a community of dialogue and reflection: the unique 'Feedback Forum' approach which runs throughout the programme replaces the traditional art-school 'crit', offering a radical, supportive and creative form of feedback on your work. Another special feature is the regular MA Forum, in which students and staff meet to discuss creative practice in a supportive and stimulating environment. It also offers fortnightly individual tutorials and small group supervision.
-Coherent and unique teaching approach: a carefully sequenced set of modules enable you to uncover, explore and develop your own concerns within the field of contemporary social sculpture, creative cultural action and other interdisciplinary connective practices.
-Research culture and opportunities beyond the programme: MA Social Sculpture students are welcome to participate in 7 day-long 'PhD Social Sculpture Fora' per year. This is part of a stimulating environment where tutors, alumni, research fellows and student interns work closely together in the Social Sculpture Research Unit, and in projects like University of the Trees: Lab for New Knowledge and an Eco-Social Future.
-Based in the School of Arts' beautiful Richard Hamilton Building: situated very close to the city centre in a wooded landscape and arboretum, it offers excellent technical support; well-equipped workshops in video, photography, sound, artists books, printmaking and a variety of 3-D processes; a well- equipped library with materials appropriate to our programme and dedicated support for practice-based research students. There is bookable installation space, a group studio base and 24/7 studio access.
-Wider context: research and teaching programmes in the School of Arts are linked to some of Oxford’s leading cultural organisations such as Modern Art Oxford, and the annual Social Sculpture Festival of MA student work takes place in an around Oxford, using accessible local venues as a hub. You are encouraged to make links with local communities and social and ecological organisations as well as being able to design certain projects related to their home contexts. Once you graduate from the programme you have the opportunity to participate in the annual Social Sculpture Platform which is open to the public.

Careers and professional development

In this unique programme graduates develop excellent creative capacities and new ways of thinking that enable them to identify and develop interdisciplinary arenas and contexts for public engagement with specific communities, organisations and other constituencies.

A strong aspect of the programme is the way it enables graduates to return to existing professions and contexts in new ways: as interdisciplinary practitioners with insightful understandings, greatly enhanced imaginal capacities and knowledge of new forms of reflective and interdisciplinary connective practice.

Many Social Sculpture graduates continue as social sculpture practitioners or eco-cultural activists, whilst others develop careers related to their knowledge, expertise or interests, for example within organisational change, social enterprise programmes, festival management, tertiary education, agro-ecology, arts administration; arts and music teaching, medical humanities, educators and practitioners in arts for health, promoting ecological citizenship, community cross artform work and as sustainability activists.

These diverse career possibilities have much to do with the close relationship between the content and the pedagogic approaches offered on the MA Social Sculpture programme with its focus on experiential knowing, active citizenship and connective practices.

Combining the rigour of a traditional academic programme with innovative practical and vocational components makes graduates well placed for roles as practitioners as well as for further research in territory that includes the arts and sustainability, ecological citizenship, individual and community change processes, cultural and ecological activism and the field of contemporary social sculpture and connective aesthetics.

The methodologies taught also enable new forms of interdisciplinary and postdisciplinary practice and research.

New energy systems and promoting a transition to a circular economy are amongst the greatest challenges of the current generation. 

This project offers the opportunity to gain a masters qualification working in collaboration with a leading supplier of precious metals. Understanding gained through this project will be in high demand as vehicle manufacturers seek to innovate to make fuel cell technology affordable. The project degree fees are sponsored, and you are paid a stipend whilst undertaking the research.

Fuel cells are becoming increasingly vital sources of power, with predictions for markets to surge in the next 20 years. A fuel cell includes a membrane impregnated with precious metals using Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) technology. Applications include electrolysers, trains, stationary power and fuel cell vehicles.

The aim of this project is to explore methods of recycling fuel cell membranes (MEA) safely in order to separate the reusable precious metal content from other products that may damage the environment. Currently, precious metals can only be recovered through a process of burning and releasing hazardous compounds. Fuel cells and electrolysers are part of the green energy revolution. This project aims to provide a recycling solution that will recover more useful valuable metals that can feed directly back into the production process.

The successful applicant has the opportunity to explore the leaching and deposition kinetics of some of the components not previously studied, such as iridium. This will likely involve techniques and equipment such as rotating discs, ring disc electrodes and electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance. The team will use this work to design a process / reactor, which allows the validation of the performance.

This project would suit a chemical engineering or chemistry graduate.

Deriving value from waste and promoting a transition to a circular economy is one of the greatest challenges of the current generation. We cannot keep taking, using and throwing away valuable materials.

This project offers the opportunity to gain a Masters qualification working in collaboration with a leading recycling company. Understanding gained through this project will be much in demand as manufacturers and retailers seek innovative new ways to recover material from waste streams. The project degree fees are sponsored, and you are paid a stipend whilst undertaking the research.

WRAP data (2012) suggests 85% of UK mattresses end up in landfill. This is not sustainable. Mattress collection and recycling is labour intensive, due to variable design and the heterogeneous nature of post-consumer feedstock. This project seeks to identify and optimise engineering approaches capable of delivering improvements in mattress reuse/recycling/recovery rates. The emphasis is to recover value or convert waste materials into products which have a real market value.

Working with academics in the Engineering department and in collaboration with the company, you will use experimental and analytical engineering skills to investigate novel approaches for the processing and re-use of mattress materials. Graduates with an interest in sustainability and at least an upper second-class degree in Chemical/Process, Materials, Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline are encouraged to apply for the project.

Transport is one of the fastest growing contributors to climate change. Rail travel produces lower carbon emissions than travelling by car and offers an efficient alternative for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint. This project will work to understand and increase the efficiencies of railway networks to improve this even further.

 

This project will utilise Artificial Intelligence (AI), data analysis and modelling techniques to identify and predict problem areas of the UK rail network. These are areas which do not have the resilience and capacity to withstand common problems which lead to train service delays. The associated economic and environmental cost of this is huge, with the need for additional rail services, replacement buses and network maintenance. This project will identify indicators of concern and build a prediction model. This will allow Digital Rail Ltd to work with rail networks to increase efficiencies and direct resources to the most appropriate areas.

 

This project would suit a graduate with a background in engineering or computer science who is capable of coding and developing advanced APIs.

An estimated 844 million people worldwide do not have access to clean water and it is estimated that this, combined with poor sanitation, results in the death of over 500,000 children under 5 each year, with the problem particularly difficult in Sub-Saharan Africa. One key problem is the difficulty in testing water for microbial contamination; conventional testing takes 5 days plus the time taken to transport samples to a central lab and the time from sampling to result may be up to 6 days. By that time, a disease outbreak is difficult to contain.

This Masters by Research project aims to demonstrate a rapid testing system developed by Hygiena International Ltd, which will make a significant time difference in microbiological contamination testing for a range of environmental water samples.

Deriving value from waste and promoting a transition to a circular economy is one of the greatest challenges of the current generation. We cannot keep taking, using and throwing away valuable materials.

Pyrolysis of waste plastics breaks down the polymers into a crude wax for potential use as a raw material, with a wide range of industrial applications. Reducing the odour and improving the colour of the crude wax is critical to the success of this novel supply chain. The project will look at what the contaminant components are, what suitable techniques might be used to remove them, and how to make the necessary quality improvements to enable the successful recycling of very large amounts of waste plastic into a useful raw material.

 

Applicants should have a degree in Chemistry (or related subject) at 2:1 or above. The successful applicant will gain skills in analytical chemistry (including NMR, mass spectrometry), purification technology (including chromatography) and preparative chemistry. An interest in analytical and synthetic chemistry coupled with enthusiasm for experimental work is essential.

Deriving value from waste and promoting a transition to a circular economy is one of the greatest challenges of the current generation. We cannot keep taking, using and throwing away valuable materials.

This project offers the opportunity to gain a Masters qualification working in collaboration with a specialist additive manufacturing company. Understanding gained through this project will be in high demand as the adoption of additive manufacturing, and the industry as a whole, continues to grow. The project degree fees are sponsored, and you are paid a stipend whilst undertaking the research.

Working with academics in the Department of Engineering at Lancaster University and in collaboration with the partner company, you will explore methods of separating powders using technology such as magnetic centrifugal and other separation techniques. You will also look to identify the use of powders in different sectors, enabling the powders to be traded downwards for re-use. This will ensure that new powders are not used on all occasions where the application is not critical. 

Applicants should have a first class or upper second degree in mechanical, manufacturing or production engineering or related disciplines.
