The Graduate School of the Environment (GSE) runs some of the leading postgraduate programmes in the field of sustainability in the UK. The GSE team leads the way in the advancement of post-graduate environmental education. The work of the GSE is central to CAT’s mission of equipping people with the skills and knowledge to deliver practical solutions for sustainability and transformation.

The GSE currently delivers a suite of MSc Sustainability programmes delivered through blended learning; and an onsite-based M.Arch in Sustainable Architecture (ARB-Part 2 prescribed). Students on all of these programmes benefit from CAT’s experience in the field of sustainable architecture and building, renewable energy and global environmental issues. CAT provides a unique environment for study, with access to leading academics and industry practitioners in the relevant fields.

CAT’s M.Arch team are committed to student-centred teaching in small groups (a typical yearly intake is 25), with an opportunity for part-time work in practice alongside academic studies. (CAT’s M.Arch is a full-time course, but it is taught via an intensive, on-site teaching week per calendar month, supplemented by remote teaching (via tutorials, seminars and lectures) during the other weeks of each month. This allows students to add part-time working to these other weeks of each month, provided that they can dedicate the required time to their M.Arch studies.
