If you are looking for in-depth technical training in the structural and architectural conservation of buildings, there are few places better to do this than in the World Heritage City of Bath. Our unique location gives us ideal study material and a rich environment to draw on as you learn about classical architecture in a classical city.
Our course develops your understanding of the principles of structural and architectural conservation. You’ll learn the philosophy, law and policy needed to make informed decisions in conservation.
Case studies give you the opportunity to visit historic building sites in the UK and see conservation in practice. These field visits will give you a deeper understanding of approaches to the repair and re-use of old buildings in our built heritage. You'll combine detailed knowledge with training in conservation techniques for materials and structures. These include exploring principles, faults, causes, diagnoses and remedies. This equips you with the practical skills to achieve a high level of architectural correctness and competence.
You will learn from leading architects, structural engineers and related professionals in our Department of Architecture & civil Engineering. We also have regular guest lectures from leading practitioners in this field giving you the chance to build connections with experts in industry. We have a range of professional speakers including conservation engineers and architects, specialist contractors and members of Historic England.
