    Course Summary

    The University of Greenwich’s Quantity Surveying BSc program will give you the deep understanding of the construction and property industries, management and business economics, and the laws and regulatory structure which overhangs the profession of quantity surveying. You’ll learn about project management, risk management, the economics of construction and the ways organisations in the construction industry handle contracts.

    The degree program may include an opportunity for a work placement within your intended specialty at any one of a wide range of local or national organisations in the construction industry or a closely related one. These placements are typically paid, though certain charity organisations offer travel and meal expenses rather than a salary. You will be encouraged to arrange a placement in an organisation doing the kind of work most suitable to your long term career goals. This may be a golden opportunity to begin building a professional contact network land learning industry specific skills even before you graduate.

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.
