Accredited by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC), this distinctive masters’ qualification addresses current challenges recognised worldwide.
We place emphasis on the role of sustainability within the historic context at both technical and strategic levels. By using our established expertise as a research locus for sustainable design, the course addresses these concerns, which have been identified internationally by the International Council on Monuments and Sites UK (ICOMOS), as the critical future direction of conservation education.
The course is offered on both a full time and a part time basis and attracts students from a broad range of backgrounds who benefit from the opportunity to exchange and build their expertise.
Who is the programme for?
It is designed for graduates who want to pursue a career in this area and whose first degree was in a related area such as Engineering, Planning, Architecture, Archaeology, Surveying or Construction. It is also open to people who may have equivalent experience in the construction industry or in heritage management.
Former students have come from backgrounds including Architecture, Planning, Surveying, Engineering, Project Management, Construction, History, Archaeology and Fine Art Conservation. Many are employed in Local Authorities or Private Practice; some run their own businesses as conservation contractors, project managers or architects. We also have students who are recent graduates. The diversity of skills and experience amongst the students is key to the vitality of discussion, reflecting the complex nature of practice in this area.
In summary, the course aims to:
- Broaden your career opportunities by enabling you to gain expertise in conservation leading towards professional accreditation.
- Augment your current expertise by developing skills to assert detailed and strategic responses to complex issues regarding building conservation in the context of a sustainable agenda.
- Ensure you possess the requisite knowledge but also to know where to refer for advice in order to take responsibility when making reasoned decisions in relation to multifaceted conservation issues.

Strwythur y cwrs
The programme is offered on both a full-time and a part-time basis. The taught modules are all delivered over six two-day sessions per year thereby attracting part-time candidates who are employed in full time practice.
Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022.
Full-time students will complete all taught modules and a dissertation in year one.
Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
Dysgu ac asesu
Sut y caf fy addysgu?
The taught material is largely delivered by a range of specially selected -guest speakers, all prestigious within their particular field. The speaker’s presentation is followed by lively debate and discussion with the group, taking the form of a seminar to give the opportunity to learn from a range of perspectives. We undertake many site visits during the course of the programme, seeing live projects and engaging with practitioners, clients and statutory authorities.
Resources and Facilities
The Welsh School of Architecture has a strong reputation in sustainable design research which forms a point of reference in the programme. The School possesses its own laser scanner and students are all introduced to methods of digital documentation including structure-from-motion and terrestrial laser scanning techniques. Software skills including principles of hygrothermal modelling and energy use modelling are also introduced. If they are interested, students may be supported in further study of monitoring techniques. We introduce students to archival research methods both at Cardiff University and in public archives.
Sut y caf fy asesu?
Each piece of work or report is assessed at an outline stage and at completion stage, with feedback given to guide future submissions. There are no class tests or exams during the programme, however, students are required to submit written and project work on time and also on occasion to be able to present their work orally to the group.
The course briefs are designed to enable students from differing backgrounds to pursue paths relevant to their chosen or existing career progression.
Each 20-credit module is assessed via a combination of written assignments (4,000 words approx. each) and presentations. The 40 credit ART 504 module on Case Studies and Regional Work is assessed through a 4000 word dossier and a final presentation and 4000-word report. The 60-credit dissertation is 20,000 words and students are strongly encouraged to pursue and develop their own distinctive interests through the choice of subject here.
Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?
All of our students are allocated a personal tutor when they enrol on the course. A personal tutor is there to support you during your studies, and can advise you on academic and personal matters that may be affecting you. You should have regular meetings with your personal tutor to ensure that you are fully supported.
You will have access to the Architecture Library, as well as to materials in the other Cardiff University Libraries.
We also support students through the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central, where you can ask questions in a forum or find course-related documents.
We encourage all of our postgraduate students to engage in personal development. At the start of the course we will introduce you to available opportunities for personal and professional development and again at major stages of the course.
Cardiff University also offers a wide range of support services which are open to our students, such as the Graduate Centre, counselling and wellbeing, financial and careers advisors, the international office and the Student Union.
We offer written and oral feedback, depending on the coursework or assessment you have undertaken. You will usually receive your feedback from the module leader. If you have questions regarding your feedback, module leaders are usually happy to give advice and guidance on your progress.

On satisfactory completion of six modules you will:
• Be able to balance and articulate in practical and conceptual terms the circumstances of change and the values of the physical environment and to construct effective strategies to address such problems.
Professional Practical Skills:
As an IHBC accredited course it enables suitably qualified candidates to achieve full IHBC accreditation in 2 as opposed to 5 years. Completion of the course by RIBA and ARB registered Architects entitles them to become “Conservation Registrants” immediately. For ARB/RIBA registered architects, it reduces the number of years in practice required to be entitled “Specialist Conservation Architect” to 4 years (from 5) and 2 years (from 3) for “Conservation Architect”.
The course validation for the IHBC accreditation is based on its alignment with International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) education criteria. As such, international students should be able to claim similar professional acknowledgement in their home countries.
Our students have gone on to be employed by the National Trust, the Planning Inspectorate, to be promoted within local authorities and to set up new divisions in their practices and businesses.
