Course content

This course enables you to become a professional within the specialist field of historic building conservation. London is rich in its collection of historic buildings, and the course team places great emphasis on using these to illustrate and inform elements of the course. In particular, past and ongoing works at the Historic Royal Palaces, together with several national and local heritage organisations and practitioners, are used as the basis for project work.

Key features

  • The course is fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and on successful completion graduates will be able to register for the RICS final assessment programme. The course is also recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC).
  • The course team works closely with a variety of different organisations, including Historic Royal Palaces, building preservation trusts, Historic England, specialist practitioners, craftsmen and contractors.
  • The course is consciously interdisciplinary and international. Current and former students include archaeologists, architects, architectural technologists, chartered surveyors, craftsmen, engineers, and project and construction managers.
  • The course provides opportunities to work alongside other postgraduates in the Faculty and the wider university, including those studying architecture, landscape architecture and building surveying.

What will you study?

The course is designed to balance strategic analysis with a good working knowledge of core techniques. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to extend your current practice and/or gain knowledge and expertise in new areas.

A week-long field trip to a European city will provide the opportunity to further develop your technical knowledge and embed it within a practice scenario.
