We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Institute is Europe's largest free-standing University department dedicated to transport teaching and research.
Our mission is to advance the understanding of global transport and to develop skills in transport professionals, which we do from a unique inter-disciplinary perspective.
With a successful track record going back over 40 years, we now have around 60 staff, over 100 Masters students and more than 50 PhD students. This wealth of experience and critical mass means that ITS is widely respected as a first choice destination for anyone interested in transport.
ITS’ reputation for excellence is world-wide. We have consistently achieved a high rating in the UK government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), reflecting research of international standing. In 2010 ITS was awarded a Queen's Anniversary prize for Higher and Further Education - in recognition of forty years sustained excellence.
This high ranking means we can recruit top students, attract high quality staff and invest in world-class facilities.
Students are taught by staff who are not only at the forefront of academic research, but also have widespread practical experience in consultancy and as advisers to organisations such as the World Bank, European Commission and national governments. Our Masters courses benefit from this applied expertise and students receive vocational training of the highest standard.
Reflecting the status of ITS, the facilities for postgraduate study are of world-class standard.
