Are you interested in gaining a master’s qualification that will equip you for a professional career in surveying? This RICS accredited course includes a specialist pathway for becoming a quantity surveyor, also known as a construction cost consultant.
The first stage of this course will introduce you to key concepts and frameworks related to built environment disciplines. The second stage is specific to quantity surveying and will develop your knowledge of writing specifications, tendering, managing contracts and projects, procurement, construction law and dispute resolution.
The final stage will be a master’s dissertation that investigates an aspect of how quantity surveyors manage the costs of construction projects while ensuring the required standards and quality.
The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which is a reflection of its relevance and quality and meets the academic requirements for membership.
You’ll study by flexible distance learning. Many of our students combine their studies with jobs in property, construction or a wide range of other industries. We welcome people from a variety of academic backgrounds, not just surveying.
This distance learning course is for people who want to take their interest in property or construction to the next level. It will be ideal for able and motivated graduates wishing to pursue a career in quantity surveying. Even if you have studied a different discipline at undergraduate level, this could be the course for you.
Applicants should normally have a minimum of a lower second class (2:2) honours degree. It is advantageous, but not essential, to be in relevant employment. You also need the enthusiasm and drive to succeed. For international students, evidence of English Language competence is required in the form of IELTS, level 6.5, or equivalent. There is also an on-line access requirement and further information is available at request.
