The primary purpose of the Transport Studies programme is to produce graduates with the capacity to apply high level skills and knowledge competently in the field of urban passenger transport planning and management. The secondary purpose of the programme is to bring teaching and research resources together in an innovative, cross-disciplinary way. This will add value to teaching and research in the transport field both regionally and nationally.

Changes in the legislative and policy environment of transport provision have generated a need for graduates with an appropriate array of inter-disciplinary skills and knowledge, who are able to contribute effectively to the planning and management of urban passenger transport systems as a component of the broader process of integrated development planning at the local level. The programme is intended to address this need directly.

Structure and content:

A candidate for the MPhil in Transport Studies is required to complete courses (120 credits) and a minor dissertation (60 credits), and to comply with the prescribed curriculum.


Students will be assessed for each course module through a range of methods, including formal examinations, but primarily through group and individual assignments or projects. These will be designed to enable them to demonstrate their critical understanding of the subject matter to which they have been exposed as well as their competence to deal with practice-based problems or issues arising out of that subject matter. In addition, students registered for the MPhil qualification will be required to formulate a relevant topic for their minor dissertation, translate it into a set of detailed research questions, design and execute an appropriate research method, and present their results or conclusions in a carefully structured and coherently argued report. This will provide the opportunity for a 'capstone' assessment of their ability to apply skills and knowledge acquired throughout the programme to a specific issue of theoretical and practical significance.
