Want to build your way to success in an exciting, varied area of construction? Our Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) accredited course provides the expert knowledge you need for a career in building surveying. Youâll learn a range of technical and professional skills, including how to convert and adapt buildings, and perform surveys and valuations. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry.
Building surveyors advise clients about the use and performance of their buildings, including brand-new builds as well as existing, historic or listed structures.
Our course will develop your skills in all aspects of surveying buildings. Youâll cover their design, specification and performance. Youâll also learn about inspection and analysis, how to recognise and tackle defects, and how to manage projects.
Youâll learn to appreciate, identify and understand technical problems in construction and develop an understanding of the surveyorâs role within wider economic, legal, social, political and environmental frameworks.
Learning to work well independently and as part of a team, and in safe and ethical ways, youâll mix with people from other built-environment professions and develop a clear sense of professional responsibility.
Youâll use industry-standard equipment to learn how to conduct site surveys and property inspections. Our facilities include a materials and testing laboratory, an environmental science and design laboratory, and a surveying laboratory. We also have design and AutoCAD studios.
We have close links with several professional institutions. This, plus contact with local firms, ensures youâll stay up to date with industry practice. Youâll also benefit from site visits and talks by professional experts. The opportunity to do a work placement will let you apply your skills in a real working environment.
Our course is recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
