    Course Summary

    An MSc degree in Construction Project Management from the University of West London will mark you as someone who knows how to keep almost any kind of building, infrastructure or built environment project on track, on target and under budget. It will make you employable in a wide range of roles in the UK, but your credentials will also be recognised all around the world.

    This degree program is of interest both to students who have just graduated with a BSc in a related field and to industry professionals who have years of construction experience but lack the managerial credentials they need to take their careers to the next level.

    You’ll learn project management, leadership and personnel management skills generally, but you’ll also learn how to identify, foresee and overcome the kinds of challenges that are unique to managing construction projects. Perhaps more importantly, you’ll also learn how to meet the world’s growing demand for building projects which are both environmentally and economically sustainable.

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.
