The course has a strong established link with the University's Sustainability Hub, which provides opportunities to address sustainability challenges on our doorstep.
"Working with the Sustainability Hub during my MA Sustainable Design – volunteering with the Green Impact programme and working as a Green Connector – was incredibly valuable. Especially my work as a Green Connector allowed me to put the skills and knowledge that I gained through my studies into practice in a quite specific working environment – the University. This allowed me to see things from different perspectives. As a designer I can now also really understand big organisations like universities, and the professionals who focus on environmental issues within them. Working as a Green Connector for the Sustainability Hub whilst studying was reciprocal – my studies enriched my work, and my work enriched my studies." Cindy van Rees
"This is a well established programme that reflects the ambitious vision and intellectual maturity of its programme leader and staff. Compared to many comparable courses, it is successful (in my view) partly because it tacitly expects students to engage on both a personal and a professional level, especially in terms of ethical engagement in the professional world. As a result, the most successful graduates from this programme are impressive and unique individuals."
"The process of introducing graduates to the next year's cohort is part of this process of acculturation to a field of learning that, of its nature, exceeds the usual assessment criteria."
"This is a mature and exemplary masters course."
