Building courses cover a range of topics, including project management for the built environment, building application software, and architecture and urban design. The range covers short building design courses all the way to master’s degrees.

If you want to get into something like building design or architecture, or if you want to become a project manager, it’s a good idea to have a postgraduate qualification. Postgrad certificates or diplomas are a start but a master’s degree is really best. After all, would you want your kids to attend a school that had been designed by someone without five years theory and practical training behind them?

Short courses are great for continuing professional development, as well as for people who just want to improve their ability to work effectively. For example, managers can take a short course in team building, which will improve the overall work environment.
