    Course Summary

    Leeds Beckett University’s Construction Management BSc program is a great choice for potential students who want to learn how building project can be effectively managed and how modern, complex buildings actually work.

    This program explores three major themes: the technology of buildings themselves, the best practices in management within the construction industry and the role the construction industry plays in modern society. You’ll learn all about the business environment modern construction firms operate within, from the legal framework which surrounds them to the financial and economic factors which affect their profitability.

    The degree program includes an optional year in paid working placement. This will be an excellent chance to learn real world accounting and finance skills whilst many other students are still in class. A year in industry not only increases your employability, it usually builds confidence in your own abilities and provides you with the beginnings of a professional contact network. It also looks good on almost any CV.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
