About

The Building Surveying course at Kingston University is ideal for "converting" an existing undergraduate degree into a building surveying qualification and gaining entry into the construction industry.

Overview

During the Building Surveying course at Kingston University, you will gain knowledge of building materials, construction technology and pathology; specialist legal and regulatory issues (e.g. Party wall issues); the design of simple structures; and the preparation of schemes for the rehabilitation of buildings. 

The course focuses on the core competencies of the building surveyor operating within the construction industry. It takes into account the developing sustainability agenda with which construction professionals must increasingly engage, together with multidisciplinary requirements specific to building surveying (e.g. Building Information Modelling). While centred around the discipline requirements necessary for the UK-based building surveying professional (as identified by the RICS), the course also contains European and global perspectives.

Careers

Graduates of the Building Surveying course at Kingston University work in positions as diverse as the Royal Palaces, housing associations as well as building surveying consultancy firms.
