The role of the building surveyor is vital in today's construction industry as the sector strives to produce new, high-quality buildings while maintaining the historical structures that surround us. Gain the practical skills and theoretical knowledge that supports your role as a building surveyor in protecting, maintaining and refurbishing both modern and historic buildings.

Whether you are looking for a course to support your entry into the construction industry or you want to progress your current career by becoming a chartered surveyor, your course will prepare you to progress to chartered building surveyor status with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)*.

You will study building pathology, construction law and the technology behind building refurbishment. You will also develop the theoretical appreciation and practical skills to repurpose existing buildings and efficiently maintain them once they have been renovated.

Issues from your own workplace can be used to contextualise your studies. The flexible nature of online learning will enable you to study anywhere in the world and will also help you to balance the demands of the course with your working life. Our Virtual Learning Environment, through which the course is delivered, can be accessed at a time that suits you and your professional commitments.

Ideal if you are working in the construction industry, this online course will allow you to fit your studies around your work and home commitments. You will be able to access our Virtual Learning Environment in your own time and also benefit from the same support our onsite students receive.

This course is all about interactive learning, so you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with your tutors and fellow students through group discussions. In this collaborative environment you will be exposed to new issues and ideas, giving you the ability to bring different solutions to your workplace.

The teaching team includes professional building surveyors with specialist knowledge, so you will have access to expert advice on a range of disciplines, from building pathology to thermal performance and insulation.
