Nottingham University


Nottingham University has developed a suite of post graduate infrastructure and management MScs in the last three years that are proving to be highly popular.

The college originally set up an in house course for contractor Carillion. It then took the logical step of developing the work into an MSc programme which includes MScs in planning, risk management and applied project management.

'We have got a package where the student does an MSc in infrastructure but can take a theme such as earthquake engineering, coastal and river or environmental, ' says Bill Askew, director of studies.

'The MScs have elements of management in them but can tap in to virtually all our disciplines.'

Numbers show a revived domestic market for post graduate education after years in which it has been dominated by overseas students, he adds. 'There was a recession in Britain and we weren't getting enough people coming through, ' says Askew.

But, he adds, 'the market still there for international students, ' helped by the fact that earlier this year the government relaxed work permit rules making it easier for international students to find work after the course.

'We have noticed a 10 per cent rise in applications from international students at undergraduate and post graduate level.'
