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.

Housing and Urban Development

This module provides students with an understanding of the process of residential property development within the context of social housing provision, and public/private partnerships. It examines how the built environment is shaped in relation to a changing social, economic, and policy context. The module offers a framework for evaluating the outcomes of particular approaches to property development.

Comparative Housing and Study Visit

You will be provided with an understanding of the strengths and limitations of cross national comparison in Housing Studies and apply these in a project. A 5 day residential study visit to Amsterdam allows you develop a case study to explore similarities and differences in housing development and management across Europe, and how this can inform professional practice in the UK.
