We facilitate site visits and attend student presentations of work. In return, we ask that institutions provide us with opportunities to help shape the scope and focus of assignments and allow us to make use of their findings at the end of the studies.

At the end of the programme we celebrate the work of students by holding a super-crit for students to present their work in a Thamesmead venue, attended by local schools, community groups and a panel made up of professionals in regeneration, architecture, landscaping, and senior members of local authorities.


What are some examples of areas studied?

Our programme allows for a diverse research studies and is open to all disciplines if considered relevant to the regeneration of Thamesmead. Research topics should aim to deliver positive outcomes or overcome challenges for Thamesmead and its residents. Past areas of work include focus on Housing, Landscape and Environment, Architecture, Planning, Master-planning, Co-design and Urban Design. We are always keen to hear how your university might like to be involved and to expand areas of research.
