Facilities and Equipment.
Both departments are based in the Geography and Planning Building on the University of Sheffield campus. Here you'll have access to dedicated teaching and learning spaces and the teaching staff who you'll work closely with during the MSc. Our postgraduate study rooms are equipped with the latest industry-standard GIS software, such as ArcGIS 10.1, QGIS 2.0 and a range of other more specialist tools. GIS facilities are also available on all 1,500 networked computers across the campus and the main University library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can be flexible about when and where you work. You'll also be able to install copies of course software on your own computers at no extra cost.
In addition to separate postgraduate study space, the recently refurbished Geography and Planning Building also houses a dedicated cafe-style social space where you can meet to discuss group work, chat with friends or take time out.
