Advanced Sustainable Design gives you the knowledge and skills to put theory into practice in the sustainable development of our cities, towns and countryside. We work from the scale of building systems to entire regions.
Applications are welcome from graduates of all disciplines. Our field is architecture, design and planning but we welcome graduates in environmental sciences and the humanities.
The programme is delivered in a series of practical projects supplemented with workshops and seminars on all aspects of sustainable design. You have an opportunity work in building simulation modelling and gain desirable skills for the workplace.
Normally a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in a relevant subject.
You must submit a portfolio as part of your application. Your portfolio should be a PDF, no more than 10 pages and no larger than 25MB in size. It should demonstrate a clear interest in sustainable discourses and strong evidence of engagement or interest in design culture, practice and visual communication.
If you do not meet the academic entry requirements, we may still consider your application on the basis of your portfolio and/or relevant professional experience.
