Course summary

Course Details

Quantity surveyors are the cost managers of the construction industry. While studying for a recognised degree, you will learn how quantity surveyors organise, control and manage the costing of projects, including building economics, contracts and construction law, construction technology and project management.

You will undertake individual and group assessments and develop core skills. With your excellent analytical, arithmetic and IT abilities, we will help you develop as an innovative team player with the problem solving and transferable skills needed to succeed. Studying this course will provide you with the confidence and skills that are required in the modern construction industry to tackle difficult contractual situations and negotiations as well as an industry perspective on contemporary issues in the field.

This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Graduates are eligible for full membership of the RICS following an acceptable period of approved professional practice and a successful final assessment of professional competence by the RICS.

This course offers the opportunity to take a 'sandwich' year - a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.

Course Benefits

Our sandwich route includes a one year industry placement, enabling you to take advantage of the strong links we have with local authorities, commercial organisations and private quantity surveying practices - all of whom provide placement opportunities for our students.

We have industry standard facilities and software applications including QS Pro and we are constantly developing our Building Modelling Information capabilities to keep pace with the latest requirements from Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), government and industry. We also encourage you to become a member of RICS.

Job Prospects

Quantity surveyors are in demand both in the UK and worldwide, and we will provide you with the guidance and industry contacts to help launch your career after graduation. Whether you choose to work on-site for a construction company or in an office environment with a consultancy firm, a rewarding career with excellent opportunities in the field of built environment will be open to you. Upon graduation, you will be qualified to work in a wide range of commercial or private practice organisations.
