    Course Summary

    As the construction industry continues to grow at a much faster rate than the national average, the organisations within that industry and those closely associated with it need more and more skilled project managers to achieve their business goals. In addition, the ever increasing demands on professionals already working in the construction industry lead more and more of them to seek out the skills (and professional certification) that comes with a master’s degree in construction project management.

    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.

    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.
