Course summary

The MRes Sustainable Places programme has been designed as a level 7 award that will provide a continual professional development opportunity for research and inquiry in areas of business, society, community and systems.

Within the programme students study system, community or societal attributes through the lens of sustainability places research which will prepare them for the changing nature and role of sustainable places in the twenty-first century.

Course Overview

The notion of sustainable places is often bound up in environmental, planning and behavioural policy and research thinking. While these areas are vitally important there are aspects of community and systems in society that are overlooked as representing a significant domain within sustainable places. For this reason, this research-led programme has a focus on community, society and systems for collaboration in a sustainable place. A sustainable place can be regarded as a locality, and a locality is a place that should be enabled for a future instilled with meaning by human experience, reclaiming the significance of the local in the global age and not just for a remembrance to the past. It is this reclaiming for the future that establishes the strength of this trans-disciplinary programme which is aimed at rescuing and liberating the local be that system, community or societal attributes through the lens of sustainability places research.

The course will examine topics and tools from extensive discipline areas that are of concern to business, society, community and systems to stretch students’ standpoints and considerations of sustainable places research.

The programme is delivered on campus and through our online Virtual Learning Environment where you will get access to all your key learning activities, resources and your learning group using the latest interactive communications tools and applications. Our University support services are on hand to guide you through your studies.


All assessments will be submitted online and will build and reflect on the collaborative activity within the modules. The tutor will provide formative and summative feedback and will be available by email, telephone and/ or Skype for further clarification of feedback if requested by the student. Progression and award will comply with the standard University regulations for Masters programs. Arrangement for re-sit work will be provided through the University VLE.

Students can also exit with PGCert Award.
