The Outdoor and Environmental Education unit of Moray House School of Education is a world class institution dedicated to the research, teaching, and promotion of outdoor, environmental, and sustainability education.

This page provides links to information on each of the courses on our three programmes

The MSc Outdoor Education and MSc Outdoor Environmental and Sustainability Education each has a tailored Professional Development Programme (PDP).  While not compulsory, the PDP plays an integral part of the Diploma and Masters programmes and is designed to bring together the theory and practice of outdoor and environmental education in residential, journeying, and workplace situation.  It is firmly expected that all students will fully participate unless extensive prior experience in specific domains can be demonstrated.

Student dissertations, government reports and contract research.
