Course content

PgCert/PgDip/MA Housing Studies is a professionally-oriented course that will extend your professional knowledge and ability to perform at a senior level in the housing and housing-related professions.
Good quality housing is one of the most basic necessities in producing thriving communities and ensuring the health and wellbeing of individuals, so the job market around housing provides plenty of opportunities to graduates.
The learning style is designed to provide support through lectures, workshops and speakers from practice, as well as directed reading and regular progress meetings between students and tutors. All modules are assessed by coursework rather than exams.
You'll study different housing systems and visit a European country to investigate its housing practices - currently students visit Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
The course is professionally accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing.
