Course content

Are you interested in gaining a Masters qualification that will equip you for a professional career in housing? This RICS accredited course includes a specialist pathway in managing and developing housing.

The first stage of this course will introduce you to key concepts and frameworks related to built environment disciplines. The second stage is specific to housing and will develop your ability to plan and develop housing developments, manage rented housing, ensure compliance with planning policy frameworks, and understand contemporary issues affecting the providers and users of housing.

The final stage will be a Masters dissertation that investigates an aspect of how housing professionals operate in complex and unpredictable environments.

The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH).

You’ll study by flexible distance learning. Many of our students combine their studies with jobs in property, construction or a wide range of other industries. We welcome people from a variety of academic backgrounds, not just surveying.
