This new multidisciplinary programme is designed to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills required to take up the exciting job opportunities arising from recent changes to the planning system for UK marine areas.
The need to improve our management of the seas and oceans is increasingly being recognised. We need to repair the damage that has been done to the marine environment and make it possible to draw on the sea’s rich natural resources in a sustainable manner.
Marine spatial planning is now developing as a key component of marine management. It is being taken up by coastal nations around the world, including Australia, China, the United States of America and several European nations, such as Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It aims to deliver a more organised sharing of sea space between demands as diverse as nature conservation, tourism, ports and shipping, renewable energy, fishing, aquaculture and mineral extraction. Some nations, including the UK, are now introducing statutory provisions for planning their coastal and marine waters and are setting up bodies and procedures for carrying out marine planning.
The normal entry requirement for all our postgraduate programmes is a good first degree (2:1) or above, in a related area from an approved university or equivalent. Applications from those with non traditional qualifications and relevant work experience are also welcomed and will be considered on their individual merits.
