Assisted and Independent Living

This course brings together the disciplines of the built environment including design, and health, to address societal challenges in assisted and independent living. We offer a radical re-think in how you can holistically work together with other professions to provide better built environment design and facilities, and improved care services that support these environments.

Entry requirements

An undergraduate degree from any discipline (2.2 or above) or a professional qualification from any discipline. We welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully. The Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) process could help you to make your work and life experience count. The APL process can be used for entry onto courses or to give you exemptions from parts of your course. Two types of APL may be used for entry: the Accreditation of Prior Certificated Learning (APCL) or the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).

Course modules

Modules include: Inclusive residential environments; designing for accessibility and inclusion; assisting and mainstream technologies; perspectives beyond the built environment; dissertation.

Assessment methods

Assessments are negotiated, which means that you will have a broad assignment brief from which you can focus the specifics of the assignment to meet your learning needs, your current interests and the needs of your workplace (if appropriate). There is one assignment per module. There are no examinations.
