Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.
Architecture is the process of designing and planning a space or building according to a set of aesthetic, social and environmental guidelines. Because of this, architecture is often divided into categories depending on the overarching style.

You may have acquired some excellent abilities so far in design and planning, but do you possess the skills to enable your ideas to take form and say something about the environment you live in, about yourself? The Business of Architecture Program has been created to serve as a bridge between design and the real world, design table and built form. [+]
“Architecture is the science that permits the man to reveal his own integrity in built form, and an architect’s highest responsibility is, first of all, to become whole as an individual in order to best carry out this mission, and then be of service to the world that he has created around himself. The Business of Architecture is putting integrity into form.”
Founder and President Elio D’Anna
Education today seems to be the antithesis to the classical models laid out by the ancient Greeks in which schools the pupil were encouraged to question, to participate, and before all else - to know themselves. The European School of Economics believes that the world one lives in is none other than a reflection of the inner states he lives, and that the more one knows and therefore masters himself, the more he can create a world that is pleasing for himself and others. All courses at the European School of Economics are centered around the individual as their most vital element.The world is a mere reflection of the world we live and dream internally. An individual whose aim is order and beauty cannot help but manifest this integrity in the external world. A man who loves himself and so, the world around him cannot help but create, emanate and instill order wherever he goes.... [-]

This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. [+]
This course delivers the skillset in linear or structural modeling that is required to solve structural problems from which you can develop finite element (FE) models for practical applications. It also teaches how results can be correctly interpreted. The course uses an open source FE package in a series of weekly practical sessions where models are constructed for sample problems and results are validated against simplified analytical models or open literature.
The majority of professionals in many branches of mechanical engineering will benefit from adding FEM to their skills array. The ability to develop modeling skills under supervision in a non-critical environment means that skills and techniques can be acquired in a logical, progressive manner.... [-]

Rationale of the Training Course - Developing Social Housing Projects
One of the characteristics of developing countries is fast growing cities and the lack of affordable and adequate housing. Social housing policies try to address the housing problem but have often been implemented in such ways that the people in real need are not reached and/or the social housing projects do not improve the overall living conditions of people or lack a contribution to sustainable urban development o their problems. Developing and therefore allowing for better implementation of social housing contributes directly to the living conditions and to the growth of cities in the developing world.

Rationale of the Training Course - Eco-Cities: Policies for Sustainable Energy
Half the world’s population now live in built-up areas, with an estimated 60 million people being added every year. This rapid urban growth leads to environmental degradation and excessive demands on services and infrastructure. Energy consumption has increased drastically. To address this it is necessary to develop sustainable urban energy policies and best practices in efficient land use, transport, sustainable buildings and sustainable development overall.
•Theme 1: Concepts and strategic systemic approaches to sustainable urbanization
•Theme 2: Eco-restoration in Korea: planning, techniques and experiences... [-]
