About Railway Operations, Management and Policy, MSc - at University of Leeds

Railways play a key social and economic role throughout the world. However, across the world, railways are coming under increasing pressure to address the ongoing challenges in everything from capacity and congestion to reliability within finite resource budgets and complex industry structures.

Innovation is now perhaps more important than ever. That's why the need for professionals with tailored skills and knowledge to provide solutions to these challenges has grown - especially in the last few years.

Our Railway Operations, Management and Policy MSc takes a multi-disciplinary approach, equipping you with the holistic skill set you'll need to develop and evaluate solutions to railway problems and make a real contribution to the challenges of our railways worldwide.

Taught by leading researchers with an international reputation, this Masters degree has been designed following close consultation with industry to help prepare you for a rewarding career.

Studying in the Institute of Transport Studies at Leeds will also give you a unique head start in your career in transport. Not only does our world-leading research shape the course, but our close links with large corporations means you'll have chance to interact with potential employers and possibly interview for graduate schemes and other vacancies. We also offer opportunities to build your industry work experience before you graduate with work placements and project work throughout your course.

"This course will bridge the gap between understanding day-to-day operations of the different parts of the complex rail system and the wider social and strategic context that railways operate within. It will enable new and existing professionals to excel within the industry. Network Rail is keen to support this bold initiative by the University of Leeds." - Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman Network Rail.
