Develop the analytical and intellectual skills you need for a successful career in surveying on this hands-on course. Our stimulating, problem-solving approach engages you with the whole building surveying process, and not by simply sitting in a classroom with text books - you’ll spend time out and about in the local environment and on construction sites, gaining real world experience of the industry. Assessment of your work is balanced between the academic requirement of a degree and the practical nature of your chosen career - so, rather than write academic essays, you’ll be expected to produce reports and projects based on real-life scenarios. Professional recognition is one of the reasons our graduates enjoy excellent career prospects. The provision of both academic and practical experience, coupled with our close involvement with employers, produces graduates who are highly regarded in the workplace. It will therefore come as no surprise that our graduates have secured employment in organisations such as BAE systems, Eric Wright Construction and EC Harris.
