Course summary

Building surveyors are concerned with the provision of expert advice on all aspects of design, construction, maintenance and repair of buildings and the conservation of the built heritage. Much of their work involves the assessment of the condition of buildings and specifying remedial work to be undertaken. The work of the Building Surveyor is wide ranging and involves both site and office based activities.

The degree programme in Building Surveying provides the specialist knowledge and skills necessary to enter the Building Surveying profession at graduate level with a view to completing the Assessment of Professional Competence to gain professional membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Course content is aimed at providing an understanding of the roles and purposes of building surveying and its relationship with other disciplines within the industry. In addition to core areas of technology, maintenance management and building conservation, professional practice skills are further developed through integrated project work in all years of the programme.

Assessment

Assessment methods vary and are defined explicitly in each module. Assessment can be a combination of examination and coursework but may also be only one of these methods. Assessment is designed to assess your achievement of the module’s stated learning outcomes. You can expect to receive timely feedback on all coursework assessment. The precise assessment will depend on the module and may be subject to change from year to year for quality or enhancement reasons. You will be consulted about any significant changes.

Coursework can take many forms, for example: essay, report, seminar paper, test, presentation, dissertation, design, artefacts, portfolio, journal, group work. The precise form and combination of assessment will depend on the course you apply for and the module. Details will be made available in advance through induction, the course handbook, the module specification and the assessment timetable. The details are subject to change from year to year for quality or enhancement reasons. You will be consulted about any significant changes.

Normally, a module will have 4 learning outcomes, and no more than 2 items of assessment. An item of assessment can comprise more than one task. The notional workload and the equivalence across types of assessment is standardised.
