Built Environment Studies

Debates concerning the quality and design of the built environment, transport infrastructures, housing provision, urban regeneration, conservation and the natural environment continue to dominate policy making. You'll design your own package of study from across a range of built environment specialisms so that you can develop your professional skills and career opportunities. You'll study a bespoke higher degree in the subjects that you choose. These will be drawn from existing postgraduate programmes in disciplines such as: Urban Planning, Urban Design, International Planning, Urban Regeneration, Housing Studies, International Tourism, Real Estate, Property Development and Planning, Civil Engineering, Construction and Construction Project Management, Building and Quantity Surveying. The course provides you with the opportunity to study a unique blend of technical, managerial and policy issues.

Entry requirements

Students with a relevant first degree at a minimum of 2:2 level/Bachelor degree equivalent to UK Second Class Honours Lower Division looking to understanding processes and mechanisms of the built environment, or those with an existing professional qualification looking to undertake continuing professional development. Relevant experience will also be considered.

Course modules

Students choose modules from a set of parent Masters courses which focus on different aspects of the built environment. They are free to choose which ever modules they like, so long as the Programme Board is confident they have the necessary skills and experience to tackle the modules chosen.

Assessment methods

Modules are assessed by a range of coursework, design and practice-based projects, presentations and a dissertation.
