Each course is accredited by at least one of four professional bodies:

Our core activity is educating professionals for a technical, ethical, economic, political and social world where the built and natural environment forms the context for human activity.
Partnerships with professional institutions
Our Inter-Professional Project, requires all third-year students to undertake research and produce a report on behalf of an industry client — which has led to our students working alongside Birmingham City Council’s Housing Regeneration and Development Department and informing current and future Council policy.
Through the Centre for Environment and Society Research, we conduct research into the problematic gap between planning strategy and policy.
Our work focuses on the study of human intervention in the physical environment, with the aim of improving current and future conditions.
