We’ve been delivering facilities management education for over twenty years and are the leading provider of part-time, postgraduate FM education in the UK. Our academic experts come from industry backgrounds and combine intellectual rigour with the latest business thinking.
Our students come from a diverse range of work settings and bring that knowledge into their studies, co-creating learning experiences. They benefit from our research-active department’s close links with industry and insights informed by the latest practice. The results speak for themselves: we polled 100% student satisfaction in 2016’s Postgraduate Student Survey.
All our courses are BIFM-recognised, so you’ll earn a professional qualification as well as an academic one, once you graduate.
