Convert your HND qualification in construction to a full honours degree on this intensive one-year course.
Around 10% of the UK workforce is employed in the construction industry and there’s a strong demand for managers with the necessary technical knowledge and professional skills.
This course will extend your knowledge of the key areas of responsibility for construction managers, including site engineering surveying, project planning and management, law, business and construction technology.
There’s a strong practical dimension in the shape of role play and group work – and you’ll explore a specialist topic in-depth during the major project/dissertation phase.
By the time you complete our course you’ll be a confident problem-solver and leader, with a sound understanding of the key issues you’re likely to encounter in site or project management.
Additionally you’ll have studied the construction management role in depth, be familiar with its methods and be able to manage your own contribution and development in this fast-paced industry.
The course leads naturally to further academic study and professional development if you’d like to apply for membership of bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) or Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologies (CIAT).
To start this course you must hold a recognised Higher National Diploma (HND) in construction. Please contact us if you’d like to confirm you’re eligible.
Our graduates have gone on to professional, technical and managerial careers in construction management, quantity surveying, building surveying and estate management. The course provides a sound basis for professional studies if you’d like to apply for CIOB or CIAT membership.
We’ll assess your progress from your performance in exams, project work, presentations, role play, report and case study writing and the workplace.

You can pay your fees in the following ways.
Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
If you choose not to take out a loan you can pay your fees directly to us. There are two ways to do this: either pay in full, or through a three- or six-month instalment plan starting at registration.
Most new undergraduate students can apply for government funding to support their studies and university life. This includes Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans. There are additional grants available for specific groups of students, such as those with disabilities or dependants.
We also offer a fantastic range of ARU scholarships, which provide extra financial support while you’re at university. Find out more about eligibility and how to apply.
From September 2018, EU students starting an undergraduate degree with us can access an £800 bursary.
Meanwhile, our £400 Books Plus scheme helps with the costs of study. There's no need to apply for this: if you're eligible you can simply collect a Books Plus card when you start your course.
You'll need to have completed a recognised Higher National Diploma (HND) in construction. All applicants must show that they have a good level of spoken or written English, and if English is not your first language you'll need to demonstrate the ability to study in English.
