This is a programme leading to Higher National Diplomas (university second year equivalent qualifications) awarded by Liverpool John Moores University with the following titles.
HND Sustainable Construction
HND Sustainable Construction Design
HND Sustainable Construction Management
All pathways provide a broad-based grounding in professional construction with an emphasis on the demands of the sustainability agenda. The Design pathways has a focus on the skills needed to design construction projects, the Management stream on those needed to manage construction activities, and the Sustainable Construction pathway allows students to mix and match modules from both of the other pathways to suit their own preferences or employment needs.
All awards are available through full- or part-time study and timetables are designed to minimise the number of times that a student would need to travel to College.
Students without a relevant qualification at level 4 will first complete an HNC in Sustainable Construction and then progress to complete the HND. Students with an HNC in Sustainable Construction would complete the level 5 modules only.
It is not necessary to select your pathway at the time of application, this can be selected later in discussions with the programme team.
The full-time fee for this programme is £7725 per year. Part-time fees are charged in proportion to the volume of study undertaken, if this programme is taken over four years the fee would be £4120 per year.
How will the course be assessed?
Most assessment is by a mixture of written assignments, practical work, presentations and online tests. There are no formal examinations at level 4 but two modules at level 5 contain 90 minute written examinations.
