GSD Course Acquires IEMA Accreditation

The School for Cross-faculty Studies is excited to announce the agreement of a partnership with the Institute for Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) for all of our undergraduate courses in Global Sustainable Development. IEMA is the global professional body for individuals and organisations working, studying or interested in the environment and sustainability.‚Äč With over 18,500 members worldwide, IEMA is the professional organisation at the centre of the sustainability agenda, connecting business and individuals across industries, sectors and borders and we look forward to a developing this partnership further in the coming years.

Accreditation means that, throughout their period of registration on any of our BASc undergraduate courses in Global Sustainable Development, students are entitled to free student membership of the Institute and, upon successful completion of their course, they qualify for GradIEMA status. Graduate membership is a launchpad for future leaders within environment and sustainability and offers a range of benefits to support graduates throughout their career. Accreditation by IEMA, therefore, confirms that our ground-breaking courses in GSD offer students a professionally recognised level of knowledge, skills and tools for working in sustainability practice.
