    Course Summary

    The University of South Wales’ MSc degree program in Construction Project Management is mainly of interest to two types of students. The first type comes to the program fresh from a Bachelor’s level program in construction, civil engineering or a closely related field. They generally seek out higher level qualifications in order to compete for the kind of ‘fast track to management’ roles which will quickly establish them in the construction industry.

    The other type of students who generally express interest in a Construction Project Management MSc already have years of experience in construction. However, they lack the training and certifications which would make them competitive choices for promotion within their existing organisation or in related roles in other companies. They may even lack relevant undergraduate degrees or professional certification.

    Both types (and more besides) can use this degree program as an opportunity to establish themselves as professional managers in the construction industry.

    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.
