    Course Summary

    The increasing demands on construction professionals – especially those who operate their own businesses – mean that more of them are seeking the skills, knowledge and certification that comes with a higher education. This program can lead to a PGCert, a PGDip or a full MSc degree in as little as one year at full time or in 12-28 months at part time. You choose what best fits around your working schedule. This program does include a dissertation requirement, but only at the full MSc level.

    The program will give you a thorough understanding of the way projects are managed (both on paper and in person), and the way project managers can support workmen and other construction professionals in the field and within their organisations. It is designed to be useful for nearly anyone in the industry. It will be just as helpful for a trainee or hopeful project manager as it will for civil engineers, surveyors and architects.

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.
