Building surveyors are involved in the design and construction of new buildings as well as the repair, refurbishment and management of existing structures. This course will equip you with the skills you will need in design, law, management and technology to become a chartered surveyor. It will enable you to look at a building and see potential, create plans and consider practical aspects of its use. Our students gain hands-on experience during site visits to modern developments and historic projects while studying for a degree that is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Graduates are eligible for full membership of the RICS following an acceptable period of approved professional practice and a successful final assessment of professional competence by the RICS.
