Course summary

Course Overview

  • Delve into the real-life experience of a facilities manager with a Foundation Entry degree course that keeps up with a fast-paced changing industry and focuses on sustainability.
  • Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.
  • This degree explores how workplaces are constructed and managed and how legal and economic constraints impact on our built environment. And, in particular, it focuses on the new sustainability demands placed on a facilities manager.
  • Facilities managers co-ordinate all the services within a building, from its construction to ICT systems, workspaces and energy efficiency. You’ll learn how the nature of a built space and the efficient control of non-core facilities affect the productivity of an organisation and the wellbeing of the people who use it.
Why study with us
  • Our placement tutors have close links with industry so you’ll learn the skills and current knowledge sought by employers.
  • Benefit from the latest high-quality equipment and facilities available in our new £35m Engineering Innovation Centre.
  • Studying with students on the construction project management, quantity surveying and building surveying degrees leads to beneficial knowledge sharing.
Further Information
  • The Facilities Management programme is delivered in conjunction with the programmes in Construction Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying.
  • This delivery model means subject experts within this academic discipline can share their knowledge and experience across the degree programmes, enhancing your student experience.
