Course summary

Quantity surveyors manage the commercial aspects of building and civil engineering projects, including finances, procurement and contracts. On this course, we’ll equip you to specialise in this field – preparing you for roles that sit at the heart of the construction process.

You'll learn about the various procurement options available in the UK and internationally, and develop approaches that seek to maximise client value, minimise costs and deliver construction projects to the required standards. Through module and project work, you’ll explore construction law, technology and management and have the opportunity to source and gain real work experience on our Industrial or Professional Experience optional module.

Who is this course designed for?

This course is aimed at professionals and graduates wishing to pursue a career in quantity surveying. It is also suitable for those wishing to ultimately pursue a career in construction project management, or construction management, through a quantity surveying route. It is suitable for prospective students who don't necessarily have a background in construction. This course can act as a route into quantity surveying or construction management for non-cognate professionals and graduates wishing to make a career change, or with a non-construction related qualification.

How will I learn?

  • A wide range of teaching and learning methods are used to deliver the course content. In most modules, you’ll take part in intensive sessions of key point lectures, supported by study guides and other literature.
  • Many modules include presentations by external industry specialists, to provide a real life perspective on the module content.

Assessment methods

  • You'll be assessed via written assignments, projects, reports, presentations, learning portfolios and exams.
  • Assessment methods vary from module to module, however written assignments and case studies form a significant part of the assessment process.
  • Assignments are investigative in nature, enabling you to develop principles, analyse, critically appraise and evaluate relevant issues, demonstrating your creativity and sustainable thinking.

Careers and employability

The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), enabling successful graduates entry to the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) of the RICS. The APC is the on-the-job training scheme that graduates need to complete to qualify as a chartered surveyor. Find out more about how to complete your APC and become RICS qualified.

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) accreditation is further proof that the course meets the highest standards of quality.

This course provides an opportunity for graduates and professionals from disciplines unrelated to real estate and construction, to embark on a professional career in quantity surveying.

Non-contact hours include direct out-of-classroom reading and activities, and independent learning and reading is deemed necessary to achieve the learning outcomes for the course.
