Application period/deadline: March 14 - 28, 2018

- Northernmost architect school in the world

- Design-oriented study programme

- Leads to an EU-notified professional architect’s degree

The international master’s degree programme in Architecture is a two-year design-oriented study programme. The courses are taught by professionals with wide range expertise in the field of architecture and urban design. Professors of the school are internationally recognized architects actively involved in the profession and architectural debate both in Finland and internationally.

The degree awarded is an architect’s professional degree, providing the right to practice the architect’s profession in Finland and the European Union according to the national laws and decrees.

The study programme provides students with skills, knowledge and advanced tools in:

Define your career potential. The property sector is Australia’s largest industry and second largest employer. Read more

Define your career potential

The property sector is Australia’s largest industry and second largest employer. Fulfilling the residential and non-residential needs of Australia continues to remain a priority and requires employers to hire graduates with the capabilities and skills to work in a dynamic and unpredictable market. Now more than ever, graduates must combine their knowledge and skills with the advancements in technology to remain competitive.

Prepare yourself with knowledge and technical skills for a career within global property related industries and professions. The combined Master of Valuation and Property Development/Master of Project Management prepares students with project management skills that ensure complex new initiatives are implemented as intended by development managers.

Combined studies

The Master of Valuation and Property Development/ Master of Project Management ensure graduates are equipped with knowledge and skills across a variety of disciplines. Graduates focus their attention to property investment and valuation, as well as project and program management. This combination of knowledge and skills allows graduates to differentiate themselves in the industry and pursue many career paths.

About the program

The combined Masters degree in Valuation and Property Development and Project Management enables students interested in being a development manager to gain specialised knowledge related to property investment and development. Development managers require project management skills to ensure that complex new initiatives are implemented as intended. It is also an international endeavour, where property development and urban renewal is relentless. Therefore, a combined understanding of the property investment process together with the generic principles of successful management of scope, time, cost, risk, human resources, quality, procurement, stakeholders and environmental impact, and their balanced integration, is most valuable. Development managers must know how to assess risks, and take them where appropriate, and may be involved in commercial, residential, industrial and civil developments, often involving large-scale projects. Students graduate with a Master of Valuation and Property Development and a Master of Project Management upon completion.Graduates of this degree are internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

The regeneration of local economies, local places and local societies is high on the political agenda. Read more

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.
