Summary

This course is taught by a mixture of academic staff and industrial practitioners, bringing cutting edge research together with real world industry experience into the classroom.

FUNDING / COMMITMENT This Higher Level Apprenticeship (HLA) is fully funded by the DfE, although places are limited. Applicants and their employers must demonstrate commitment, and ensure enough time is allocated, to attend and complete the course.

ABOUT YOU The HLA is a work / study programme so you will already be in employment, or have a firm offer of employment from a company in the construction sector which supports your application.

You will have a keen interest in BIM and digital construction. You may already have experience using BIM – hands on experience of BIM is not necessary for starting the course, but it can be useful.

COURSE CONTENT The course’s primary focus is on project management using the building information modelling process, which will give you the chance to take your career forward.

We teach the principles of project management, while using building information modelling.

THE ENVIRONMENT As a part time student, you study alongside the full-time cohort in a class of around 30 alongside people from places like India, Nigeria, China, Vietnam and Egypt. Our teaching starts in the afternoon as we know you will need to take time off work to attend classes.

You’ll have the beautiful new Graduate School at your disposal as well as a dedicated base room and computer lab in the Elmwood building.

WHAT YOU'LL GET UP TO The course is all about balancing theory and practice – a mixture of hands-on building, manipulation and management of models, as well as consideration of the higher level analytical and critical thinking skills that come with Masters level education.

Please note: This course is subject to renewal approval by the Department for the Economy.
