Course content

Our MA/ PGDip/ PGCert in International Architectural Regeneration and Development (IARD) focuses on sustainable development and regeneration of the built environment.

Architectural regeneration involves reusing, adapting and evolving existing buildings within an urban or rural context. It recognises the impacts these decisions and interventions have on the regeneration of a place. And it is underpinned by the principles of environmental, social and cultural sustainability.

The course has an international focus and we introduce you to a network of international organisations in the field. We encourage you to use more innovative approaches and dynamic ways of thinking. And we use an interdisciplinary approach so you will gain skills and take part in:

  • critical thinking and analysis
  • creative design
  • field research and design

On graduating you will be able to take on a634 leading role in organisations involved in architectural regeneration and development.
