About the programme

The programme, which is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), gives you an internationally recognised qualification from a world–leading university that improves your education, enhancing the skills and expertise needed to contribute to heritage projects at a high level.

The MSc uses a unique block teaching model during which each module is taught in two intensive weeks. This allows full-time students to reflect on each Module separately avoiding clashing deadlines and part-time/flexible students to pursue the MSc alongside their full-time career.

The flexible, modular nature of the programme is intended to support busy professionals interested in furthering their education who can take up to 5 years to complete the course

One of the highlights of the Sustainable Heritage MSc is the 2-week study visit to Malta hosted by Heritage Malta where students work on a real life project. Click on the video below to see footage from the 2016 trip, filmed by one of our students.
