Start an exciting professional career as a building surveyor by studying for our BSc (Hons) Building Surveying degree in Chelmsford or Peterborough. Building surveyors advise clients about new builds, listed buildings and historic structures. Study at ARU, and learn how to evaluate the design, specification and performance of buildings. Develop skills in building inspection and analysis, and use industry-standard equipment to tackle technical problems in construction. There are plenty of opportunities to get hands-on in specialist labs for materials and testing, environmental science and design, and surveying. You’ll also work in our design and AutoCAD studios. You can choose to take a placement year as part of this course, putting your skills into practice in a real working environment. Join a course that's ranked in the top 25% in the UK for overall satisfaction (subject ranking for Building, NSS, 2020). As a BSc (Hons) Building Surveying student at ARU, you’ll find yourself working independently and as part of larger built environment teams. This helps you understand where building surveyors ‘fit in’, and it’s great preparation for your future career. Together, you’ll go on site visits, attend talks given by professional experts, and learn how to manage projects. This puts you in a strong position for employment in this highly interesting and varied field. Our Building Surveying degree course in Chelmsford is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), so when you graduate, you can take your Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and qualify as a Chartered Surveyor. Please note our course in Peterborough does not currently have accreditation. Or, you can continue to develop your skills with our wide range of full- and part-time postgraduate degrees.
