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.
This is of particular interest in Scotland where there are extensive examples of vital new and established industries utilising the space and resources of the marine environment. These include; maritime trade, ports and harbours, fisheries, oil industry, aggregate extraction, naval military requirements, aquaculture, conservation, marine renewable energy production, tourism and recreation.
The diverse range of core and optional modules include:
• Property and Planning in Practice
