    I just graduated with a BA in Architecture, but I am not happy with working as an architect and I know it will take 3-4 years more before I get my licence. Also, I didn't enjoy architecture school as much due to the conceptual rather than technical approach towards building design.

    I was looking into a way to practise quantity surveying instead. I found this 1 year Msc conversion course at Heriot Watt and wanted to ask if anyone has any experience with a similar course.


    I also found a similar course at Liverpool John Moores university.


    Both courses are RICS accredited but I don't know how well they prepare you for practising QS. Would you recommend converting to QS and which course of the two would you choose and why?
