    Course Summary

    The University of Westminster’s BSc in Construction Management will give you the technical skills, business understanding and industry-specific planning techniques you’ll need to successfully manage construction projects of all kinds. Construction managers oversee the design and construction of new buildings, but also the maintenance, refurbishment, alteration and repurposing of existing structures.

    You’ll learn about the demands of commercial, residential, industrial and infrastructure building projects, how to plan a project, how to assess the full life cycle of a project and most importantly how to work with people in the industry. In that capacity, you’ll learn how to build teams effectively and communicate with workers, specialists and key stakeholders.

    This degree program is ideal for students who want to build a career in construction management, but also for those who plan to go into property development, financial management or project management more generally. It also conveys a wide range of highly transferrable skills.

    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.
