Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Develop the diverse range of skills required as a quantity surveyor to organise, plan and manage construction, financial and contractual arrangements. This course will enable you to follow an accredited route towards becoming a chartered surveyor with the opportunity to travel and shape the world we live in.

You might already work in the construction industry, or you might be looking to expand on the experience you have built up in a related field. Delivered online, the course will enable you to develop the core competencies required by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)*, in a flexible format no matter where you are located. Building on your experiences in the workplace, your studies will be placed in context which will enhance your strategic thinking and your confidence in decision making.

You will study construction technology, design economics, financial management and procurement. You will also have the opportunity to undertake research which will develop your skills in inquiry and critical analysis. Our links with local, regional and national employers will ensure that your learning will be inspired by contemporary industry practice that is highly relevant to your future career.

The flexible nature of online learning will also help you to balance the demands of the course with your working life. Our Virtual Learning Environment, through which the course is delivered, can be accessed at a time that suits you and your professional commitments.

We are focused on your professional and personal development. You will be guided by an expert teaching team that maintains close links with industry professionals, employers and customers to ensure your course will reflect current practice and the demands of industry. You will mix knowledge-based tasks with hands-on projects to hone your expertise and develop the practical skills that will ensure you are a work-ready graduate.

On graduating, you will be eligible to apply to sit the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' Assessment of Professional Competence, the final stage to becoming a chartered quantity surveyor. Alternatively, you could choose to enter a related field such as engineering or project management.

In addition to the comprehensive learning resources accessible via our online library, guest lectures, conferences and course-specific events will be digitally captured and made available to you.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
