BSc (Hons) Project Management

How does the degree apprenticeship work?

As an apprentice, new or existing employees study for their degree whilst in full-time employment. This means they are quickly able to put their newly acquired knowledge and skills into action in the workplace. A tailored learning package to meet the Association for Project Management (APM) standard is agreed between the employer, the university and the apprentice. To conclude the course, apprentices are required to take an End Point Assessment and, if successful, become eligible for APM membership.

Modules will be delivered on a weekly basis and apprentices will also have assignments and further academic study throughout this time. However, much of the learning happens in the workplace through shadowing and learning a range of project management activities. 

Core Modules:

  • Principles of Project Management
  • Project Practice
  • Built Environment Economics
  • Procurement Tendering & Valuation
  • Law in the Built Environment
  • Contemporary Projects
  • Project Methodologies
  • Interdisciplinary Practice
  • Risk and Value
  • Planning and Scheduling
  • Work-Based Learning
  • Project Teams
  • Advanced Planning & Tracking
  • Research Paper
  • Inter-professional Consultancy
  • Projects & Organisation Strategy
  • DA – End Point Combined Studies (Double Module)
