    Course Content

    The course themes include: building pathology, construction technology and environmental services, contract administration, design and specification, surveying techniques and principles, legal and regulatory compliance, commercial management of construction, conservation and restoration, measurement of land and property, and quantification and costing of construction works.
    In the first year you will be introduced to the fundamental topics of building design and the construction process, which are essential to practitioners in all of the construction professions, and an understanding of what a “Building Surveyor” does.

    In the second year you will focus on the practical aspects of what a building surveyor needs to know regarding building pathology, defect diagnosis and remedies. Construction law, conservation and adaptation of buildings also feature heavily at this level.
    In your final year you will focus on topics such as contract management, historic buildings, urban regeneration, and facilities and asset management.

    You will find that your course is taught using lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratories, workshops and studio sessions. These will be supervised by academic and technical support staff. In addition, your personal tutor will review and discuss your progress with you and will be available for advice.

    You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree. Help and guidance is given to enable you to successfully complete your post degree “Assessment of Professional Competence” by the RICS Regional Training Advisor.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
