my dad's a quantity surveyor and he's had a couple of students on placement from hallam with him. i think on your placement year you can earn between 16-20K and they someimes offer people jobs for when they leave uni.

Im doing a quantity surveying degree at Reading I did have a look around hallam and i liked it but i prefer the course at Reading. They have a 3 year structure where quantity surveyors, building surveyors and construction managers do the same 2 years and in the final year you can choose the pathway you want to follow out of the 3. Anyway a career in the construction industry is excellent due to shortages at the moment and you will have no trouble walking straight into a job. ITs vvery social like me !

O.K, do you reckon it would be hard (or harder) to get a job if you dont do a placement though?

I dont think it really makes a difference as people are in demand in the construction industry. So people can quite easily go straight into a job. As long as you get a decent degree and if its acredited by some institute its ok.
If you a placement you put everything you learn into practice. Where as if you dont go on the placement year you jump straight in after completing your degree.
