This programme prepares students for a career as Chartered General Practice Surveyors, professionals involved in the valuation, management and development of urban property across the commercial, industrial and residential sectors. They may also be involved in structuring the deals for sales and acquisitions of properties. In Year 3, you will undertake a year-long professional placement in the UK or abroad, which counts towards the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). The final year provides deeper knowledge and understanding whilst you will also pursue a dissertation on a relevant subject of your choice. GCU has strong links with both industry and academic partners in the UK and abroad and uses these to arrange study tours and provide case study materials. The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This accreditation gives students and graduates access to RICS membership via the graduate routes.
