This course will have a strong strand of professional development embedded throughout your modules and will develop your skills and knowledge, so you can understand contemporary and relevant critiques of the current housing sector.

Your studies will address both academic and practical perspectives, covering topics such as the ways different groups co-exist in urban areas, how to use legal frameworks, leadership, professional ethics and tenants’ law. In your final year, you will be able to tailor your studies to meet your professional aspirations.
