Stirling Campus


This MSc Housing Studies (with internship) course fully integrates all of the academic and practice components of the professional qualification of the Chartered Institute of Housing. This includes a 10-week structured, assessed work experience internship, which sets up graduates for a ‘fast track’ into a career with housing organisations in the social, voluntary and private sectors.

You’ll be introduced to the most up-to-date ideas and debates in housing and offered the opportunity to learn about the cutting edge of housing practice.

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing, the course covers all aspects of housing services, sustainable communities, governance and law, housing organisations, and health and wellbeing.

It will also provide you with a comprehensive academic and professional qualification with structured work experience and, upon completion, offer you a direct route into employment in the housing sector.

You can exit after stage 1 with PgCert Housing Studies (with Internship).

You can exit after stage 2 with PgDip Housing Studies (with Internship).
