Realising UCEM’s sustainability potential goes beyond addressing day to day operations, to recognising our position to influence and educate industry professionals who design, develop and manage the Built Environment. Delivering academic excellence is one of UCEM’s primary goals.

Our Ambitions

  • Embedding sustainability at each academic level within our provision which reflects UCEM’s practice based focus and helps identify UCEM as a leader in education for sustainability
  • Undertaking applied, real world sustainability research and partnerships aligned with the needs of local, national and international agendas

Responsible Futures Accreditation

UCEM is delighted to have been awarded NUS (National Union of Students) Responsible Futures accreditation, which is valid for two years up until Spring 2020. The institution became the first alternative provider to be awarded the accreditation – which demonstrates UCEM commitment to promoting sustainability and social responsibility – after a two-day audit carried out by UCEM students who had been trained by NUS.

The aim of Responsible Futures, through this process, is for institutions to equip students with the knowledge, skills and values to challenge the world around them and tackle social, economic and environmental issues. NUS’s VP Society and Citizenship, Rob Young, said:

Massive congratulations to University College of Estate Management on this significant achievement! Thank you for your dedication to creating a learning environment in which students develop the skills, knowledge, and attributes to be agents of change.”
