Teaching and Learning

The Construction Management and Surveying Studies programme provides a flexible, student-centred, and resourcebased learning and teaching environment, which actively promotes a deep approach to learning. At each stage, learning and teaching resources include lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and task-based activities. As the Programme progresses, the emphasis switches from large group lectures to student-led tutorials and small group self learning activities, and students are encouraged to take greater responsibility for their own learning. The techniques adopted include library and computer-based facilities, specific project based courses designed to integrate the knowledge based covered at each stage and develop transferable skills, directed reading, case studies, dissertations, Programmework and problem-solving classes.


The assessment policy for Programmes on the Construction Management and Surveying Programme is to tailor the methods of assessment to the subject being taught and the nature of the classes so that understanding, knowledge and subject-specific skills are assessed using a variety of approaches. These include essays, reports, written examinations, practical exercises, presentations, group and individual projects and the dissertation. Seeking a balance of modes within terms and stages moderates what is best for each course.

Formal assessment in courses teaching subject specific understanding, knowledge and skills is by either Programmework or unseen written examinations but there are some courses which are assessed by both. The examinations are summative while Programmework may used to assess understanding and subject specific skills on a formative or summative basis. Continuous assessment is more common in courses explicitly designed to develop cognitive and core skills, and professional awareness. This approach to assessment enables staff and students to monitor the establishment and honing of transferable skills in practical exercises that are directly applicable to the built environment.
