Course content

This programme aims to develop and extend your knowledge of the complex intersections between learning and the physical environments in which this takes place, so as to improve future educational spaces. Having an integrated and strategic understanding of learning spaces procurement, design, infrastructure, management and pedagogy gives you an important specialism in a crucial emerging field worldwide.

You will gain an advanced interdisciplinary knowledge of learning environments, through dialogue with key experts in the field, as well as through live projects and case scenarios.

The MSc offers a variety of routes, to match your own personal and career interests and intentions. This includes a FT one-year and a PT two-year programme. Modules are taught as intensive one-week full time blocks, enabling flexibility for those in employment.

The cross-disciplinary nature of the MSc brings together experts and students from across real estate, facilities, architecture and educational fields. Collaborative and problem-based learning will prepare you for effectively dealing with complex problems in the real world, as well as both extending your knowledge across disciplines and developing a preferred specialist area.
