The course's teaching staff includes Chartered Building Surveyors with many years' experience, and we have input from part-time visiting practitioners and speakers. The course also draws upon the research and consultancy carried out in the department.

You will have access to a coherent programme of study in building surveying, underpinned by staff research and consultancy that reflects and answers the needs of professional practice. This will enable you to become an effective member of a building surveying team within a relatively short period.

On the course, we encourage you to examine the link between theoretical concepts, research outputs and the practice of building surveying, while developing your academic skills within a professionally defined framework. You'll also develop an excellent understanding of the multi-disciplinary and multi-professional nature of building surveying.
