Course summary

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 New Housing Professional 1

This module introduces you to the challenges and changes affecting current housing policy and practice. The social housing sector has been in the process of evolution for the past four decades. You will explore the relationship of that change in terms of the economic and social agenda of this period, its impact on the practice of housing management and the way the management process is likely to change in the 21st Century.

The New Housing Professional 2

You will explore new directions in housing policy, identifying the recent and current policy challenges to which housing organisations are expected to respond and implement. The module identifies models of governance (and regulation) of housing as a social business and the how these processes are likely to change into the 21st Century. The module examines the role of registered social landlords (RSL's) and other types of social landlord, which have developed as an alternative to the traditional local authority model in the field of social housing.

Neighbourhood Management and Renewal

You will develop an understanding of the process of neighbourhood change, particularly in relation to housing and renewal, and will critically analyse and evaluate practice, with particular reference to current policy debates and innovations in Neighbourhood Management. The module includes an overnight field trip to an urban area outside of London and the South East, either Liverpool or Newcastle.
