Sustainable Construction FD





About the course

A builder's ability to construct sustainable buildings is an increasingly important factor in a company or individual's decision to employ them.

This course is designed to provide career development, or a professional route into the construction industry.

It gives you knowledge of construction, how best to utilise land or space, and ways to make buildings more energy efficient: inspect, operate and get hands-on experience with alternative fuel systems, including solar domestic hot water heating, ground source heat pumps and photovoltaic systems.

Whether you choose to study full-time, or part-time to fit around your employment (one day or evening per week for the duration of the course), your knowledge of a building’s structure and the sustainable systems inside it will impress prospective employers and give you confidence as a building engineer of tomorrow.

Entry requirements

A Foundation Degree will be of particular interest if you have completed a Modern Apprenticeship, vocational A levels, BTEC National or equivalent.

Foundation Degrees are also particularly suitable if you want to qualify while working.

UCAS introduced a new tariff for courses from September 2017. This means the points you will be asked for are different to previous years but the grades you receive have not changed.

As a guideline, a typical offer would require you to obtain a UCAS tariff score of between 32-48 points, based on your level 3 studies.

Many students studying for foundation degrees come to us through work-based routes so you can apply for a foundation degree even if you don't have traditional academic qualifications.

We welcome applicants with relevant work experience.

Contact the Admissions Team for additional guidance on whether the qualifications you currently hold or are taking would be suitable for entry.
