What do surveyors do?

Surveyors shape the way we live. From our towns and cities to our streets and homes, they help create safer, better, happier communities. This course is specifically for people wanting to become a residential surveyor, this means inspecting properties and producing pre-purchase reports and valuations of them.

Why become a surveyor?

To help transform communities, create safer places to live and tackle global issues like rapid urbanisation and climate change. Surveying is a varied career mixing office-based work, innovative technologies and the chance to work on major projects with real social value. As surveying skills are increasing in demand around the world, you can grow your career, develop specialisms and explore global opportunities. Because of this surveyors are rewarded with excellent pay, benefits and career opportunities.

What is required?

Beyond the studying you must appoint a RICS-qualified counsellor to support and guide you through your application and assessment process. By completing the course we are able to act as your counsellor, thereafter we partner with a bespoke company who will help you to complete your RICS application forms and case studies for assessment.
