    Hey guys, I am trying to decide which course to take next year a university.
    I hear that building surveying is kind of useless and will not take you far, making you a foreman as such? Is this true? What career prospects can I achieve from just this course? Is there much need for building surveyors and what kind of salary do they get?
    Also the for quantity surveyors, is the course just for quantity surveyors? or are other jobs available for these qualified people after? Is there much need for building surveyors and what kind of salary do they get?
    Please respond with views of opinion, I am so stuck with this one.
