Course Summary


MPhil: Pursue your research degree with an internationally known institute that works with influential partners, including government and industry.

Established in early 2011, the Global Sustainability Institute’s core research questions are based around personal motivations and systems change, in relation to sustainability.

This translates into three key research areas:

Consumption & Change

Global Risk & Resilience

Education for Sustainability.

We collaborate with departments throughout Anglia Ruskin, as well as with numerous external organisations, including the UK's Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Mott Macdonald and Lloyd’s of London

It’s an inspiring environment in which to conduct research and influence the world – and we can offer you high-quality supervision from influential figures in the sustainability field.


Our students are closely involved in the Institute’s activities, including research seminars, producing our ‘So What?’ magazine, our annual conference, journal club and public engagement events.

We’ll also provide comprehensive research training in areas such as academic writing and publishing, research methods, subject developments, data analysis, conference skills and presentation.
