Housing & Sustainable Communities Studies
Why choose this course?
This two year course has been developed to meet the requirements of the Chartered Institute of Housing's expectations for Chartered Membership.
The National Student Survey identified the FdSc Housing Programmes as having 100% student satisfaction levels.
The programme recognises that students will work in a variety of different settings and these can, and have, included the following: housing management, supported housing, care and support, housing advice, lettings (social and private sector), empty property management, private sector enforcement, tenant /resident involvement, housing development, housing strategy, housing options including engagement with private landlords, homelessness, repairs and maintenance and performance/business management.
The course team are passionate about ensuring that students get the best possible experience at the University and that they are well prepared to get their first job or to work more effectively in their existing job. We do this by making sure we are accessible to our students, and by making sure that our teaching and assessments relate to work and help to develop the skills and knowledge demanded by employers.
The lecturers were excellent and always had time for the students should they need to discuss any issues and/or require additional support.
