Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is now offering a full-time bachelor’s degree in facilities management. The three-year course, which also has the option of an additional year in work placement, also includes BIFM qualifications.
Linda Hausmanis, director of education at BIFM, said that the degree would help to address the skills shortage within the FM industry.
She said: “It offers an opportunity for employers to support the programme by offering work placements for students.
“It provides a real signposting opportunity for all those FMs who are keen to promote FM as an exciting career to younger audiences.”
The full-time tuition fee is £9,000 a year; the full-time international tuition fee is £12,360 a year; the full-time home placement year fee is £975 a year; and the part-time tuition fee is £6,750 a year.
The degree also has a part-time option for students who are already in employment.
