Study the key areas of quantity surveying such as • financial management • contract administration and practice • conflict avoidance • cost planning • procurement and tendering • quantification of construction works • building information modelling. As well as introducing key topics we give you the chance to apply these concepts in real life scenarios and collaborative assessment techniques. How you learn The course introduces key themes through lectures, seminars and tutorials. You are also taught using a variety of other techniques including • practical laboratory classes • IT workshops • fieldwork • site visits • self-directed project work. Field trips You are invited to go on field trips in your first and second year. During year one you go on a residential field trip, usually staying in a city centre hotel. In year two you have the option of visiting a European city to carry out activities linked to your studies. You may be able to study abroad as part of the Erasmus programme. Work placements In the third year you have the opportunity to apply your learning on a paid work placement at a building organisation or professional practice. We have long standing relationships with leading companies, which will help you to gain a good placement.
