Comments about MSc Housing Studies - At the institution - Leicester - Leicestershire

  • Objectives
    Graduates of our housing programmes find themselves promoted to a variety of different posts at management and director level not just in housing organisations, but across the public and private sectors
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants will normally have a cognate* first degree.*Certain degrees and HNCs provide an obvious link to housing qualifications such as Social Policy, Social Sciences, Politics, Human Geography, Law, Estate Management, and Building. Others are clearly not relevant such as science and mathematics. However, there are a large number which fall within these two extremes and may be cognate but require more in depth evaluation to determine their cognate status such as English Literature, Languages, Accountancy, and Humanities. Those with substantial housing experience will also be considered on an individual basis. Non-cognate degree holders are required to undertake the one year Graduate Conversion Course (GCC), prior to enrolment. Applicants with other relevant experience and/or qualifications may be admitted to the course at the discretion of De Montfort University’s admissions panel.
