Course summary

Understand all areas of building surveying and develop the practical skills needed to succeed with this BSc degree course at LJMU.Traditionally, a building surveyor’s main area of expertise has been in property refurbishment and conservation, but nowadays they are also involved in building design, management, maintenance, and surveys – the whole lifecycle of a building, in fact. As such, they work with a range of people, from building owners and occupiers to builders, planners, lawyers and service engineers, so not only do they need to be technically competent but practical as well, and capable of giving advice on subjects as diverse as repair diagnosis to building design to legal representation in court.The course is built around the following four themes together with work experience and project tasks that simulate real working practices, giving you the knowledge and practical skills to launch your career as a building surveyor:- Technical knowledge, such as building construction, building defects, science and materials- Design practice, which covers cad, refurbishment projects, sustainability projects, building conservation- Management practice, including construction site management, facilities and maintenance management business management- Law, including construction law, property law, health and safety lawThe course also offers a sandwich route which involves a paid placement where you can apply what you have learnt at LJMU out in the workplace. Such experience will enhance both your professional skills development and your CV, boosting your employment prospects after graduation.Students not undertaking a placement year are registered on the non-Sandwich version of the programme and will have the opportunity of an additional study year abroad following Level 5, providing students with an additional year of study at an approved overseas partner that will complement their programme at LJMU.
