BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying


The course will take up to five years to complete, combining blended learning of on-the-job practical training with integrated academic learning. This blended approach is designed to be adaptable and flexible with a combination of face to face university teaching, online learning research and reflective practice and assessment. The experiential learning section of the course focuses on the student’s workplace and specific areas of project work they are undertaking. This is linked to the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence helping the student work towards the End Point Assessment for the degree apprenticeship. The employer is also expected to engage with this section of study to help the student progress through their training.


Strong career themes run throughout all levels of the course which allows contextualisation to meet the need of your business.
