Description of Building Surveying Hons

Advertisement

Building surveying requires a combination of technical, economic and managerial skills. The programme reflects this diversity through lectures, studio sessions, individual input and teamwork on projects, seminars, workshops and site visits. We focus on the post-construction life of buildings, and, in keeping with our multidisciplinary approach, students work on projects with students taking other programmes within the School, such as quantity surveying, design and construction management, estate management and architecture. A major feature of the programme is its international perspective.

The university is investing £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street is a short walk from the Greenwich Campus and this programme will be delivered there from 2014.

English Language Requirements

IELTS take IELTS test
6

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
