Our BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying Degree Apprenticeship is an opportunity to combine study and work. As well as providing a high-quality degree qualification, it lets you achieve chartered status with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and pursue a fulfilling career in the surveying industry.
Quantity surveyors look after the financial management of construction projects, from concept through to design, build, maintenance and disposal. They play a vital role in deciding whether projects are financially viable. They also provide consultancy services to clients: evaluating the economic feasibility of a project, development costs, procurement options, contractual arrangements and legal constraints.
The course has been developed using the government approved surveying trailblazer standards. This means that it incorporates all the knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined by employers representative of the sector.
You'll need to be employed in a relevant role to study on this course. To find out about apprenticeship opportunities with our partner employers, visit our vacancies page.
Our work-based course ensures that it meets the needs of the industry and is adaptable to a range of employers and roles.
The assessment of the Degree Apprenticeship is constituted of three main elements:
The end point assessment is the final assessment for the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). This is a substantial assessment and will typically take 6-9 months to complete in addition to the duration of the degree. This is a rigorous process involving extensive preparation.
The end point assessment requires you to demonstrate that you have achieved RICS defined competencies to which the apprenticeship standards have been mapped.
Apprentices who already have a relevant higher level qualification (HNC/D, Foundation Degree etc) may be considered for advanced entry to the course. Your application will be considered on an individual basis and may require an interview.
