Benefit from our strong industry links by attending visiting lecturer talks and site visits, working on case studies and gaining work experience so you’re prepared for employment. The skills we teach have helped our graduates secure roles with companies including Faithful+Gould. Our excellent relationships with employers mean that you can undertake a work placement, helping you gain real insight about the work of building surveyors and make valuable professional contacts. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year.
