SCCS works collaboratively with external organisations and funding bodies in the development of research resources, archives and surveys. We also provide advice and expertise in a number of areas and at a range of scales, from Heritage Impact Assessments and Conservation Area Appraisals, to Listed Building Consent.
We are home to ECA’s highly-regarded Architectural Conservation - MSc programme, the longest-established graduate historic preservation programme in the UK. Coming to Edinburgh from all over the world, and from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, our students have produced an extensive catalogue of outstanding dissertations in the discipline.
Our annual series of Architectural Conservation Masterclasses feature leading national and international figures from a wide spectrum of disciplines and are a recognised pathway for Continuous Professional Development.
We also run conferences, seminars, exhibitions and bespoke training events in collaboration with partner organisations, including DOCOMOMO International, Edinburgh World Heritage, the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
