Marine Spatial Planning

Course Description

Due to the recent UK and Scottish Marine Bills there is a requirement for provision of Masters level training covering marine planning issues. Drawing from existing expertise across Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, we now offer a new multi-disciplinary Marine Spatial Planning MSc in response to these industry needs.
