Course Summary:
Building surveyors are key professionals within the building management and development related sectors of the Scottish construction industry, advising clients on both commercial and residential building issues.

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!

    I think caley is brilliant for students who don't know many people in Glasgow as through clubs and student accomodation it is easy to meet new people.
