Our postgraduate courses in Geographical Information Systems are taught jointly between the University of Leeds and the University of Southampton. This joint collaboration allows us to draw on a wealth of expertise from some of the UK’s leading academics to provide world-leading, research-led teaching to all our students.
Our courses are designed with working professionals in mind. With four start dates per year and a suite of materials which you can work through in your own time, we offer a flexible, part-time study schedule which can be tailored to meet your needs.
Our courses focus on the scientific, technical and computational aspects of GIS which have wide ranging application to a number of fields. Our graduates work in areas such as; oil and gas, local government, health, consultancy and GIS development, to name but a few. You can specialise in an application area of your choice (Environment, Health, Remote Sensing, Developer, Business or Planning) and upon completion you will graduate with a qualification from a Russell Group University.
We offer three programmes of study in GIS and a number of standalone modules which can be studied as short courses over a 12 week period:
