More about this course

The demand for real estate surveyors across the globe is high and growing. Developing you into an employable graduate is something that our School of the Built Environment is strongly committed to. Through this BSc, you’ll develop the valuable skills sought by employers within the field and become confident in tackling complex challenges head on.

The first year of the course provides you with a thorough grounding in law, planning, economics and valuation.

The social value of real estate and sustainable development will be echoed regularly throughout your studies. 

What’s more, our location in London provides us with unparalleled access to some of the UK and world’s most influential real estate organisations, multidisciplinary consultancies, developers, contractors and industry professional bodies. On our doorstep are some of the UK’s most important projects, including major urban redevelopment projects across London and South-East London. 

Through your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with these organisations and projects. You’ll take part in site visits and attend guest lectures. The work experience completed on live industry projects will inform your course assessments. In addition, you’ll engage with real estate surveyors, developers and consultancies.

Upon successful completion of this BSc, you’ll be a highly motivated, knowledgeable and skilled individual, able to pursue a professional career in this exciting sector.


Our assessments are primarily coursework based, though some modules will confirm proper understanding and knowledge of core concepts through testing methods. For modules with enquiry-based learning, industry style scenarios will form the basis of your coursework.

Your coursework will be made up of presentations, portfolios, essays and reports. In addition, you will need to submit your own research or work-based project, which you’ll then be graded on. 

We promote decolonisation and diversification and all assessments for this course are inclusive and accessible. Our assessment styles have been designed to increase your awareness on issues relating to diversity, ethnicity, nationality and culture. We’ll also highlight the impact that these issues can have on the real estate industry.

This assessment style is achieved using two different methods:

  • Case study analysis – by looking at case studies from around the world, you’ll assess the challenges that real estate professionals face when working in different countries and with different cultures. 
  • Project choices – you’ll have the option of various project choices, allowing you to choose where in the world you want your projects to be based. This will give you the opportunity to personalise projects and draw upon your own lived experience.

Additionally, several modules allow for assessment choice, allowing you to agree with the module team the format of presentations. Presentations can be in person, pre-recorded or even via PowerPoint, with a commentary. A live scheduled Q&A will form a valuable part of all presentations. 

Assessment for this course has been developed according to the University’s new tariff guidelines and policy.
