Course Description

Overview The demand for conservation specialists both in the UK and beyond remains healthy despite the current recession. The conservation agenda is growing in importance, particularly in the public sector, but also with private organisations which find they have to deal competently and profitably with historic buildings whilst meeting legal requirements. The role of the conservation surveyor has come sharply in to focus as the number of listed buildings grows. These buildings require surveying professionals who possess a body of specialised knowledge which goes beyond that required for a general practice building surveyor. The MSc in Historic Building Conservation aims to produce surveying professionals with this specialised knowledge, and to provide appropriately qualified people who can ensure that the stock of historic buildings is managed and maintained effectively.

Each subject area has its own fully-equipped studio, where you take part in classes, tutorials and critical reviews with fellow students. This strong studio culture also ensures regular interaction between students and tutors.
