Teaching and learning
The course contains input from professional practitioners and employers, and you will have the opportunity to take part in field work as well as class-based study, and independent learning.
Assessment will include essays, oral presentations and a formal research-based dissertation. Practice-based assessments will also be conducted on activities such as project management so that you can feel confident about your practical abilities as well as your critical skills.
The course provides a wide range of opportunities for fieldwork, looking at examples of conservation and urban regeneration in places like Leicester's cultural quarter, Nottingham’s Heritage Action Zone, and Kings Cross in London. It also explores heritage in more rural and suburban settings.
My course has enabled me to study a wide range of core topics whilst also specialising in my favoured area. I feel that I have a more in-depth and rounded knowledge – the skills that I have gained have put me in a good position for a diverse range of careers.
