    Industry experience is an important part of preparing yourself for the built environment and we actively encourage and support you in
    finding placement opportunities independently. This has given many of our past students the opportunity to gain work experience abroad and in the UK, and secured graduate jobs after completing their course.

    The world is changing. New buildings are constantly appearing and historic
    ones are in need of restoration. Our courses are aimed at students with an
