    MSc Global Sustainable Cities


    The new MSc in Global Sustainable Cities is an innovative programme focussed on tackling major urban opportunities and issues. The 12 month degree prepares graduates with the skills to plan, deliver and manage innovative solutions to tackle urban sustainability challenges.

    The programme has been developed by the Institute for Future Cities at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow), building on real world experience gained from international sustainable city projects, including STEP UP.

There is a strong emphasis on students developing and applying their skills to real-world city situations, with expert guest speakers, opportunities for international experience, and learning from placements working in genuine projects in two different cities.
