Student Profile

James Terry

“What I liked about the UCEM MSc Building Surveying programme was that I could work alongside studying. This is important to me as I couldn’t afford to undertake studies without a full-time job.

UCEM’s Tutors care about your success and are happy to help with areas you are struggling with. The VLE [Virtual Learning Environment] has a feedback system built into it which allows Tutors to improve the programme.

I’ve enjoyed being the Student Rep for UK students on the programme. It’s more work but I enjoy speaking with students to understand how they want to change the programme. I like to think I am helping to create a better programme for future students.

I want to become an RICS Chartered Building Surveyor and eventually a partner within a firm. The Careers Service at UCEM has helped me to become more employable within the sector.

The best thing about studying with UCEM is whenever I get marks back from a piece of work, I know I am one step closer to becoming Chartered.”
