Course content

Are you interested in gaining a master’s qualification that will equip you for a professional career in real estate surveying? This RICS accredited course includes a specialist pathway for becoming a building surveyor who provides professional advice on the design, development, repair and maintenance of all types of buildings.

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 building surveying and will develop your ability to diagnose building defects, refurbish existing buildings, manage maintenance, facilities management and monitor contracts and procurement.

The final stage will be a master’s dissertation that investigates an aspect of how building surveyors assess and analyse property assets.

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 and a wide range of other industries. We welcome people from a variety of academic backgrounds, not just surveying.
