Course Description

Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management is an established discipline, which covers cost management for construction projects as a professional either at pre-construction phase for clients or developers or using your technical and cost management knowledge, being able to cost various works during the construction phase. It includes new builds, refurbishment work, restorations and maintenance projects. Quantity surveyors have specialist skills and knowledge in the technologies of domestic, industrial and commercial building, construction processes, planning, project life-cycle assessment, and people and business management. In addition to the core themes of quantity surveying and technology, this professional role requires a range of costing skills including team working and effective communication.

These skills are integrated into the learning strategies of this course, enabling you typically to work in quantity surveying. Alongside the knowledge and understanding of quantity surveying theories, and the practical and technical skills needed to become a quantity surveyor and commercial manager, you will gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.

Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered.

All of our courses are delivered using an enquiry-based blended learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. Our technology-enhanced learning supports independent study via synchronous online lectures, tutorials and seminars, which are captured and stored to enable you to revisit sessions online after the event. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams.

The course promotes a professional approach to teaching and learning thus equipping students with the core skills for future and existing careers.
