Course detail and funding

Our BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying course provides a direct route to Chartered status through the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for quantity surveyors.

Based on our well-established, traditional part-time course, this is a tried and tested route for developing qualified staff in these ‘in-demand’ careers whilst making use of your Apprenticeship Levy funds (or for smaller businesses, to access a 90% government subsidy via ‘Co-investment’).
