Facilities Management (Foundation Entry)
Delve into the real-life experience of a facilities manager with a Foundation Entry degree course that keeps up with a fast-paced changing industry and focuses on sustainability.
Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.
This degree explores how workplaces are constructed and managed and how legal and economic constraints impact on our built environment. And, in particular, it focuses on the new sustainability demands placed on a facilities manager.
Facilities managers co-ordinate all the services within a building, from its construction to ICT systems, workspaces and energy efficiency. You’ll learn how the nature of a built space and the efficient control of non-core facilities affect the productivity of an organisation and the wellbeing of the people who use it.
