The new MSc Quantity Surveying programme equips construction professionals with the skills necessary to manage the costs of construction projects both in the UK and overseas. Students have the opportunity to develop the abilities, frame of reference and a common understanding of construction economics and project management to work more effectively within the industry.
The programme utilises a range of new and proven modules designed to enhance the skill set of the construction professional, integrating core modules to include:
Over and above these core modules, the programme embodies a wide range of potential electives that reinforce the professional requirements of the modern construction industry and help develop student competency in a range of appropriate specialist areas including:
Elective Modules (two to be selected each Trimester)
MSc: In addition to requirements for PgD; students must also complete a Professional Project.
Combination of exams, coursework, online discussions and a presentation.
The university has a policy of using the Blackboard web-based virtual learning environment to complement face-to-face tuition.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
The programme is intended to be accessible to applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. The normal entry qualification is an Honours degree (2:2 and above) or an equivalent overseas qualification. Applicants with appropriate professional experience are also considered.
International students whose first language is not English shall be required to demonstrate evidence of satisfactory competence by completing an Academic IELTS test with a score of at least 6.0 (with no element less than 5.5) or by holding another recognised qualification.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
