No I just got an unconditional off for loughborough! But think construction management at reading looks better, just not keen on loughborough as a place

I'm currently a trainee quantity surveyor and I know I don't want to do that anymore so think construction management would be better, way better to be out on site doing stuff not just fiddling with numbers on a computer!

I do but mostly just tedious work on spreadsheets! Funny as I did civil engineering at uni last year and ended up dropping out as I didn't like it! Just hope contraction management is right for me!

You'll probably find that your Construction Management course shares at least 70% of modules with Quantity Surveyors, likely most if not all of the 1st and 2nd years and some of the 3rd.

In the real world QS is more office based than CM, but it's not always the case, some QS' are based on site while some CM's are almost purely office based. Depends on the specific role.

Just something to consider

Hi guys, could you give me an advice/help?
I am an international student, coming to UK for a masters in Project Management (Construction).Which University is better? Reading University, Brookes or UCL? Apart to UCL that I am still waiting for a response, the other 2 gave me an offer.
Each ranking says different things, I want to have a personal opinion from you.Thanks
