About

Completing the BSc Building Surveying (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University will enable you to graduate as a fully accredited professional with relevant industry experience and excellent earning potential.

Overview

Building Surveying (Hons) at Liverpool John Moores University is built around the following four themes together with work experience and project tasks that simulate real working practices, giving you the knowledge and practical skills to launch your career as a building surveyor:

  • Technical knowledge, such as building construction, building defects, science and materials
  • Design practice, which covers cad, refurbishment projects, sustainability projects, building conservation
  • Management practice, including construction site management, facilities and maintenance management business management
  • Law, including construction law, property law, health and safety law
The course also offers a sandwich route which involves a paid placement where you can apply what you have learnt at LJMU out in the workplace. Such experience will enhance both your professional skills development and your CV, boosting your employment prospects after graduation.

Students not undertaking a placement year are registered on the non-Sandwich version of the programme and will have the opportunity of an additional study year abroad following Level 5, providing students with an additional year of study at an approved overseas partner that will complement their programme at LJMU.

Career

Do you want a varied professional career with many challenges and good employment prospects? If so then becoming a Chartered Building Surveyor may be the career for you.
