Building Surveying - MSc


Course Description

This course is ideal if you did not study building surveying at undergraduate level but would like to enter the profession and require a 'conversion' course (see entry requirements). The course draws on the strength of project work, which is a particular speciality of the School, and on the developing sustainability agenda.

This course is fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).

What will you study?

You will gain knowledge of building materials, construction technology and pathology; specialist legal and regulatory issues; the design of simple structures; and the preparation of schemes for the rehabilitation of buildings. The course focuses on the core competencies of the building surveyor and professional builder operating at local, regional and national levels. It takes into account the developing sustainability agenda with which construction professionals must increasingly engage, together with multidisciplinary requirements specific to building surveying. While centred around the discipline requirements necessary for the UK-based building surveying professional, the course also contains European and global perspectives appropriate to the requirements of international consultancies.

Assessment

Exams, essays, projects, portfolio, dissertation.

Work placement scheme

Kingston University has set up a scheme that allows postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing to include a work placement element in their course starting from September 2017. The placement scheme is available for both international and home/EU students.

-The work placement, up to 12 months; is optional.
-The work placement takes place after postgraduate students have successfully completed the taught portion of their degree.
-The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student. We cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it.
