Solent University builds relationship with BRE Academy

Southampton Solent University has announced a prestigious partnership with the world’s leading independent buildings regulation and research organisation.

The BRE Group is renowned for its independent review, research and knowledge generation into building systems, products, safety standards and sustainability around the world and its education arm, BRE Academy, has chosen Solent to become one of its official partners. The collaboration means the University can offer the much sought after BREEAM Accredited Professional (AP) training as part of its MSc built environment courses.

BREEAM is the world's leading sustainability assessment method for building and infrastructure projects. Pauline Traetto, Director of BRE Academy, is delighted to have offered the collaboration agreement: “In line with BRE Group’s strategy to support the future generation and attract a new talent pool in to the industry, we are fully supportive of Solent’s MSc programme.

“In all the universities I work with, Solent is indeed one of the most innovative, engaging and forward thinking. I applaud them for their outstanding commitment to both students and industry and playing a pivotal part in bridging the gap between academia and industry,” continued Pauline.

Reflecting on the relationship, Professor Graham Baldwin, Vice-Chancellor of Solent, said: “The University is delighted to have signed a collaboration agreement with BRE Academy which again confirms our commitment to ensuring our teaching is grounded in the needs of employers and industry.”

Sarah Radif, Solent’s Head of Architecture and Design Practice, said: “The partnership with and endorsement from BRE Academy gives our students and graduates even greater career prospects with accreditation to a world renowned industry standard. This qualification will open up doors in a busy, challenging and much needed role in the current environment.

“Anyone who studies one of our MSc courses[1] will be eligible to be fast tracked to undertake the BREEAM AP qualification at a reduced fee and have the qualifying period of three years’ work experience waived given BRE Academy’s confidence in the level of real-world teaching at Solent.”
