Course content

A career in quantity surveying is diverse and exciting, with opportunities to travel and shape the world that we live in. With the increased focus on the environment and sustainability in the planning of construction projects, there is high demand for, and short supply of, quantity surveyors to provide a cost management service, both financially and environmentally to the construction industry.

Quantity surveyors must be able to organise and plan the procurement and financial management of construction projects, as well as effectively manage and administer construction contracts. They must lead and work successfully with project teams, taking measures to improve teamwork.

This course will provide you with the skills demanded by clients who rely on a quantity surveyor’s knowledge and judgement to keep a project running smoothly. You will develop a sound understanding of procurement and financial management, as well as learning to appreciate the significance of process, technology and people to the success of projects.

As this full masters degree is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), you will be educated to the highest industry standards and are granted exemption from RICS academic entry requirements.
