Building Surveyors are required to advise on and manage all aspects of the ever growing Built Environment. As we utilise our buildings more efficiently and demand more from our urban spaces, the role of the building surveyor is becoming increasingly important.
You will learn how to advise on a range of topics from building control, building conservation, building defects, the planning system and the construction process. You’ll be able to take responsibility for delivering buildings that are sustainable and designed to comply with all the necessary legal and regulatory requirements.
This course has been developed specifically to provide students with the skills required to fill an identified shortage in the Built Environment sector.
What you will study
Building Surveyors will study construction technology which is fundamental to the role. This knowledge is then developed through the legal and regulatory framework, such as building regulations, health and safety requirements and conservation issues. Sustainability and the efficient use of buildings is explored, alongside learning about the role of public and private housing providers and the wider provision of Welsh Housing Quality Standards.
You will develop core building surveying skills such identifying building defects, advising on suitable remedies, advising on planning applications and home purchases. Undertaking stock condition surveys, facilities management, developing maintenance schedules and dealing with conservation enquires.

The Building Surveying degree is taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials.
You will also get chance to participate in numerous site visits to local companies allowing you to see how the theory is applied in a professional setting. In addition to this, you will work independently to prepare for classes and complete project work.
Your studies here won’t confine you to a classroom. We don’t believe you can learn vital skills like analytical decision making and problem solving by just reading about them. That’s why we offer practical activities that help you understand and apply the theory you learn in lectures.
Your assessments will involve examinations, coursework and problem-based exercises taught using real-life scenarios.
There are various employment opportunities in this field, nationally and internationally. You could work in private practice, property departments, construction and development companies, or with government organisations. You will also have the technical, legal, economic and construction skills to work in a variety of professional Built Environment roles.
