Course summary

Overview

This MSc/PgDip Housing Studies (with internship) course fully integrates all of the academic and practice components of the professional qualification of the Chartered Institute of Housing. This includes a 10-week structured, assessed work experience internship, which sets up graduates for a ‘fast track’ into a career with housing organisations in the social, voluntary and private sectors.

You’ll be introduced to the most up-to-date ideas and debates in housing and offered the opportunity to learn about the cutting edge of housing practice.

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing, the course covers all aspects of housing services, sustainable communities, governance and law, housing organisations, and health and wellbeing.

It will also provide you with a comprehensive academic and professional qualification with structured work experience and, upon completion, offer you a direct route into employment in the housing sector. The Diploma internship can also form the output necessary to achieve a Masters qualification.

This route blends occasional teaching sessions on campus with a significant element of online study giving you the ideal learning experience in a format which is accessible and engaging.

You’ll be taught by a team of academics who comprehensively cover the multi-disciplinary nature of housing, research, policy and practice. Our research-led teaching draws on our specialist expertise in policy analysis, homelessness and housing rights, social theory, housing and land market analysis. Students can exit at PGCert and PGDip awards.

Teaching

You’ll attend an induction over three days at the beginning of October to start the course. Academic learning is then undertaken through a combination of private study and interactive online sessions. There is a day on campus at the beginning of each academic module and a programme of visits (although materials are all available online). The course requires full participation.

Most of the time you have flexibility about where you can study and you do not need to travel to Stirling for online classes. Please ensure that your IT specification meets the requirements for the course. You can, however, access IT facilities on campus.
