The MSc is designed to comply with the research training requirements for two ESRC scholarships as administered by the North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP): the three-year PhD scholarship and the four-year scholarship that covers an eligible one year master's and a three-year PhD .
The Research Methods with Planning and Environmental Management course offered at The University of Manchester is ideal if you want to apply for an ESRC scholarship through the NWSSDTP or a School of Environment, Education and Development scholarship. NWSSDTP approved master's must meet the minimum research training requirement expected by the ESRC.
MSc Research Methods is ideal if you are considering PhD study and/or a career in research in planning and environmental management.
More generally, Planning and Environmental Management graduates are popular with employers, particularly in consultancy, where the ability to analyse and propose policies and implement strategies is vital. After London, Manchester hosts the largest number of planning and environmental consultancies in the UK.
