Built for people

We put people first. Our suite of modular, flexible courses are designed to work for each and every individual at each and every stage of their career. Whether you are starting out, or levelling up, fitting learning around life, or committing time to move to the next stage, we can offer a path that suits, and will be there to support you every step of the way.

Built for lives

We also champion the role of the built environment as the setting in which life and lives take place, today and for generations to come. Our courses put sustainability, prosperity and the wellbeing of communities at the heart, and equip our graduates to build better, and build with people in mind.



A human approach

Knowledge makes sense when it is made relevant. Learning should speak to what gets you up in the morning and fit around your lifestyle.

Putting people first

We believe in a built environment that works for people. We’re constantly evolving our curricula to ensure relevance to diverse and changing social needs and values, and work
to bring our sector to life for public audiences.

A sustainable future

We integrate the latest thinking and practices in sustainability, building a better future, today. Our flexible and accessible courses will support you on a life long, sustainable career
that works for you, and works for society.

Open and collaborative

We celebrate and foster the diversity within our community of students, alumni, staff and partners, and support them in realising their ideas, dreams and potential. Many minds
make great work, and a great community.
