  • Eligibility requirement:
  • Hodgkinson Postgraduate Scholarship is open to UK/EU and international applicants for Masters Architecture, MA International Architectural Regeneration & Development, MA Development & Emergency Practice, MSc Sustainable Building: Performance & Design). These scholarships contribute a value up to the level of the international student tuition fees towards a full-time Master's degree for a period of one year. The Scholarship Committee may, at its discretion, split the scholarship funds available and offer 3 or more partial scholarships, each contributing a set amount towards the cost of a full-time Master's degree tuition fees for a period of one year. Please ensure you address the Selection Criteria below in your application for this Scholarship. The scholarship committee will review the applicant's personal statement in terms of how their proposed programme of study will promote an understanding of and address at least one of the following: performance monitoring of built environment professionals: Benchmarking of consultant/professional performance has largely been anecdotal until the recent introduction of supply chain management techniques. Today the measurement, review and targeting of performance against comparable/competitor performance are becoming regular features of professional life. However, the measurement of 'professionals' is a cultural issue as well as one of performance, and many continue to resist what have become well used techniques in many areas of business and service provision, project review and 'close-out': Most management procedures require a close-out review to ensure knowledge capture. This simple discipline is not a particularly common feature of UK projects, but should take place to ensure learning and team development amongst built environment professionals. The art and science of close-outs, including facilitation and information gathering to inform discussion, review and dissemination, will become ever more valuable in a knowledge based economy, client drivers: The process of client development and management either in relation to a project or otherwise, is a key skill for any professional. For those working in the built environment, the challenge is to have a clear idea of how to create, build and manage accounts/or relationships, including the cost of starting and or losing a client to both a company and the individual and financial implications: Too often built environment professionals do not have a clear idea of the financial implications and drivers of projects. The emphasis tends to fall on the aesthetic, technical or procedural aspects, however, in practise, meeting and designing to cost parameters, to avoid waste of team effort and frustration due to replication of work, is a key success factor for most professionals.
