Course summary

Our foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence - with extensive support from our expert staff - before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you. This course will introduce you to practical skills in construction technology and allow you to develop the best way to learn, interpret data and understand the theories of construction management and property development. You’ll evolve a deeper knowledge of construction management and property development through interdisciplinary professional practice and independent study.


ACCREDITATION: This course is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES: Take a major step towards membership of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), which paves the way for Chartered status and the chance to boost your earning power. This course features plenty of hands-on experience to develop your practical approach to construction, problem solving and decision-making. In addition, there will be opportunities to join UK and European study trips and we also encourage you to display your work in exhibitions too.

WORK EXPERIENCE: We offer a year industrial placement which will take place between the second and final year of your degree. This will help you to develop the skills required in the workplace and strengthen your CV. The placement also gives you the opportunity to gain an additional qualification for your CV, the Diploma in Professional Practice. There is a range of support available for students who are looking to enhance their employability whilst studying including internships, placements and graduate roles.

EXPERT TEACHING: You'll be taught by an experienced teaching team who are highly skilled in this field, ensuring you are taught to a high professional standard.

WHAT YOU'LL COVER: The first stage of the course introduces you to practical skills in construction technology, develops your ability to interpret data and gives you an understanding of the theories of construction management. Throughout the course, we encourage you to challenge accepted ideas and analyse competing theories. As you progress, you will gain a deeper knowledge of construction management through Interdisciplinary Professional Practice and Independent Study. If you want to ‘top up’ an existing foundation degree or HND qualification to gain the BSc degree, you can also join this course at stage three, subject to bridging requirements being met.

HOW YOU'RE ASSESSED: You will be assessed in a variety of ways including assignments, exams, presentations, class tests, case studies and portfolios. These assessment methods will help you develop your presentation and communication skills which are essential for professional practice.

YOUR CAREER: Offering a substantial hands-on experience, our BSc (Hons) Construction Management and Property Development is an excellent route into a career offering a high level of responsibility and rewards. Once you have completed the course, you will have every opportunity to pursue an exciting professional career in construction management, project management, site management or manufacturing. Because the degree is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), you will be eligible for membership (MCIOB).
