Technology, Design and Environment / Department of Planning

The regeneration of local economies, local places and local societies is high on the political agenda. Current discussion in the UK of an urban renaissance, about creating sustainable communities and about growing disparities between the economies of London and other regions and cities in the UK overlays the traditions of inner-city regeneration and neighbourhood renewal that have long been a focus for British urban policy.

You will develop an understanding of the application of planning and action to the regeneration and sustainable development of local and regional economies, and societies. The major aims of this course are to develop a critical understanding of key issues in regeneration theory, policy and practice, and to ground you as a reflective practitioner who is also aware of the ethical and political dilemmas of practice.

Course content

The major aims of this course are to:

develop a critical understanding of key issues in regeneration theory, policy and practice

develop a critical understanding of the history and the nature of regeneration as an intervention in local economies, communities and environments

develop an in-depth understanding of varying dynamics of market driven and public policy driven strategies, along with an ability to adjust these to mutual benefit

ground students as reflective practitioners who are also aware of the ethical and political dilemmas of practice

enable students to access and understand the data sources relevant to analysing current processes and generating policy responses

enable students to compare, monitor and evaluate such policy responses in relation to relevant objectives, in order to make the highest quality strategies practicable in any particular context

develop skills to work effectively in a range of regeneration contexts.

The postgraduate certificate is based on the completion of three core modules and is worth 60 level 7 credits in total. To obtain the award you must pass all three modules (see below):

Introduction to Regeneration

introduces you to the context within which regeneration takes place and to different approaches to securing desired change. The challenges facing regeneration and the varying ways in which these have been met over time and space are critically reviewed. The main contemporary policies, objectives, strategies, funding regimes and agencies are introduced and critically analysed.

Regeneration and Neighbourhoods

critically examines key issues in current regeneration theory, policy and practice, focusing on neighbourhood renewal and people-based approaches to regeneration. As well as looking at particular initiatives the module explores issues involved in community participation in regeneration. The unit builds relevant skills in participation, drawing up community-based strategies and working in partnerships.

Delivering Regeneration

focuses on the implementation and management of regeneration projects, including valuation and appraisal, project management, evaluation and monitoring, strategy and project formulation, bidding for funds and funding packages, partnership working and working with the private sector. It aims to build your awareness of implementation issues and skills in delivering regeneration.

All teaching is currently on Tuesdays. Introduction to Regeneration is delivered in Semester 1, Regeneration and Neighbourhoods in Semester 2 and Delivering Regeneration as a 'long, thin' module over both semesters.

Architectural regeneration is the collective activities of reusing, adapting and evolving existing buildings within an urban or rural context. Read more
Architectural regeneration is the collective activities of reusing, adapting and evolving existing buildings within an urban or rural context. The activities recognise the impacts these decisions and interventions have on the regeneration of a place, and are underpinned by the principles of environmental, social and cultural sustainability.

This programme promotes an interdisciplinary approach that combines critical thinking and analysis, as well as creative design. It is based on the ethos that the regeneration and development of the inherited built environment, with its social and cultural fabric, is an essential component of sustainable development.

It prepares you for a practical and leading role in organisations involved in architectural regeneration and development. It is international in focus, with an emphasis on field research and design/implementation projects.

Why choose this course?

Oxford Brookes has an established international reputation for its excellence in teaching and research related to international vernacular architecture, architectural conservation and regeneration. Staff teaching on the programme, including Dr Aylin Orbasli and Dr Marcel Vellinga, combine different disciplinary backgrounds with academic and practice experience, and active involvement with projects in different parts of the world. We house the Paul Oliver Vernacular Architecture Library.

We stimulate students towards more innovative approaches and dynamic ways of thinking that are now essential to secure a viable future for historic urban environments, traditional settlements and the world’s vernacular architecture. The international nature of the programme builds up skills to work in different cultural contexts and will introduce students to a network of international organisations in the field.

This course in detail

The course is offered at three levels: as a postgraduate certificate, a postgraduate diploma and a master's degree. Normally candidates enrol for the master's degree, but it is possible to enrol directly on the PGCert or PGDip, either on recommendation from the admissions tutor or as an exit point from the MA.

In total, 180 credits are required to complete the MA in International Architectural Regeneration and Development. These are divided into two parts: 120 credits must be successfully completed to qualify for the postgraduate diploma. During Semesters 1 and 2 all MA students take taught core modules amounting to 90 credits and choose options amounting to 30 credits. Research methods seminars and the dissertation itself account for a further 60 credits required to achieve the MA. For the postgraduate certificate 60 credits are needed.

The programme is made up of core (compulsory) modules and optional modules that are explained in more detail below.

Core modules:
-Architecture, Culture and Tradition
-Applications in Regeneration
-Globalisation, Environment and Development
-Regeneration and Development Project

Optional modules include:
-Vernacular Architecture, Sustainability and Development
-Master Classes
-Development and Urbanisation
-Urban Design Theory
-Independent Study

Other compulsory modules for the MA stage are:
-Research Methods
-Dissertation/Design Project

The course is international in focus and throughout the course references and visits to international contexts are made. A field trip is organised each year to look at international examples of regeneration projects. The international body of students on the course are encouraged to reflect on and present experiences from their countries.

NB As courses are reviewed regularly, the module list you choose from may vary from that shown here.

Teaching and learning

The aim of the course is to provide the knowledge and tools that will enable you to recognise the potential of, and contribute creatively to, the appropriate and sustainable regeneration of the inherited built environment in urban or rural contexts, including vernacular architecture.

The course will help you develop a critical awareness of the cultural embodiment of the built environment and associated regeneration and development processes, and attain skills and tools that are necessary to propose and implement innovative yet culturally sensitive and environmentally sustainable strategies and interventions.

Teaching methods include a combination of lectures and seminars, design studios, workshops and group discussions, field study and master classes.

Careers and professional development

Jobs in architectural regeneration can include a wide range of prospects including private sector consultancy assignments, public sector decision making positions or working for not for profit organisations delivering or assisting the regeneration process.

Graduates of this programme have gone on to work in a wide range of positions in the regeneration field internationally. Much of the success of a career in regeneration is combining the knowledge and skills learnt in the programme with professional skills gained in previous study and practice. Although we are unable to directly ‘find’ jobs for programme graduates, we regularly make recommendations through a good network of contacts and alumni and share employment opportunities with current students and graduates of the programme.

Graduates with architecture backgrounds often go on to work in practices specialising in regeneration or rehabilitation. Younger graduates have found that regeneration expertise has given them an edge and therefore more responsibility in practices they are working at. Those with more experience have found opportunities to diversify and gain positions in consultancy or multi-disciplinary practices.

There are also a wide range of jobs in the non-governmental sectors, ranging from managing small non-governmental (charitable) organisations to working on projects for major donor bodies like UNESCO. We have had an Indian graduate working on post-disaster rebuilding in Haiti, a Japanese graduate working on the preservation of vernacular architecture in Vietnam, and a Canadian graduate running donor-assisted construction programmes in Papua New Guinea. Closer to home, a UK graduate with a background in law is managing a townscape heritage initiative on behalf of the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Overseas students in particular, who have joined the programme from public sector assignments, have found that the degree has helped them both specialise and progress in their departments on their return. One graduate has gone onto head the procurement team in the Ministry of Municipalities specifically dealing with major regeneration projects. Several others work for their respective national heritage authorities.

Other graduates have used the programme as a stepping stone for PhD study, at Brookes or elsewhere. A number of former graduates are now teaching regeneration and conservation at degree and postgraduate levels.

Across Europe increased economic and monetary union is emphasising the need for Member States to consider how those involved in urban and regional government can tackle the spatial disparities in economic growth and development that have been such an entrenched feature of the last 20 years.

In the Far East and North America a similar level of interest is being shown in how governments can best ensure more geographical balance in development. The design and implementation of spatial policies to manage the process of growth requires professionals with a multidisciplinary skill base and an international perspective on best practice.

This course is therefore designed to equip you with the analytical skills required to:

- Understand the factors that lead to variations in regional growth and development and to understand the consequences of regional imbalance
- Assess the scope for policy intervention to manage regional growth
- Design efficient and effective policies to manage growth at the regional level
- Understand how best to implement growth and regeneration policies
- Evaluate policy achievement and monitor and assess the effectiveness of policy initiatives.

i) to enable students of a high calibre to pursue their education at an advanced applied level drawing on the primary disciplines of economics, planning and environmental policy, with additional specialisms in finance and law;

ii) to provide students with opportunities both to build on and develop material which they may have studied at undergraduate level as well as to broaden their knowledge base;

iii) to equip students with the necessary skills to pursue careers at a high level in a range of areas, including business and finance, civil service, public service, property professions, environmental agencies and organisations, national/international agencies and further study;

iv) to provide opportunities for education in a multidisciplinary environment so as to advance the understanding of cognate disciplines and their applications;

v) to provide opportunities for learning with colleagues from different social, economic and legal systems;

vi) to provide students with appropriate skills and experience to enable them to use information and resources critically and to equip them with the means to undertake their own research;

vii) to provide an educational environment with a strong research ethos that brings together students from a wide variety of backgrounds and fosters an international approach to common problems.
