Accreditation and Recognition

There are a number of ways our students, our department and our research activity are acknowledged for their high level of achievement.

Professional Accreditations

Due to the highly professional nature of our courses they are accredited by the UK's leading bodies. We are one of just a handful of providers that offer accredited housing degrees in the UK and this year we marked 40 years of accreditation by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).

Our postgraduate Diploma in Town Planning is the final year of the RTPI's accredited undergraduate entry course, and is only available to students who have already studied an accredited planning degree. We are also accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for our Housing Masters.

We are keen to keep our course content as current as possible. One of the ways we do this is by involving employers regularly in the validation and reviewing processes of our housing programmes. This is strongly encouraged by the Chartered Institute of Housing.

Although the tourism industry is yet to have a chartered professional body the Organisation for Tourism and Hospitality Management (OTHM) chose BU to be its partner for its certificate and diploma programmes.
