This programme of study reflects the exciting changes in academic teaching and in the built environment profession that have occurred in recent years. The philosophy of this programme is based on a flexible approach to problem solving and the development of analytical faculties, while the structure offers flexibility and a range of optional subjects. The programme brings together professionals of various disciplines in the learning process to encourage interaction and integrative study.
The university has invested £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street, where the programme will be delivered, is a short walk from the university's buildings on the Old Royal College site.
The aims of the programme are:
- To examine real estate development and investment projects in wider global, economic and financial contexts
- To develop skills for effective decision making in investment and development projects
- To broaden the abilities of graduates through understanding and analysis of some of the key areas in real estate.
