Advanced Sustainable Design gives you the knowledge and skills to put theory into practice in the sustainable development of our cities, towns and countryside. We work from the scale of building systems to entire regions.

We welcome applications from graduates of all disciplines. Our field is architecture, design and planning but we welcome graduates in environmental sciences and the humanities.

Our programme is delivered in a series of practical projects supplemented with workshops and seminars on all aspects of sustainable design. You have an opportunity work in building simulation modelling and gain desirable skills for the workplace.

We believe that successful sustainable development is not achieved only through technical solutions. We explore the complex relationship of design to contemporary sustainable agendas. You will engage in cultural and professional debates about the built environment and gain a distinctive and expert voice in this field.
