Building Surveyor


The Level 6 Building Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship has been developed as a pathway within the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship Standard by a trailblazer group of employers, higher education providers and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
The course is suitable for

  • new recruits (e.g. school leavers entering into the industry)
  • developing existing or aspiring building surveyors already in employment, who do not have a relevant degree.

The Building Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship prepares apprentices for professional careers in the construction and property industry by providing the technical knowledge, initiative and interpersonal skills the industry demands.
The course will deliver against the nationally recognised Level 6 Building Surveyor pathway of the Chartered Surveyor Apprenticeship standard, providing an alternative to graduate recruitment and the opportunity to ‘grow your own’ talent. It includes a combination of work-based learning and practical application which leads to a BSc (Honours) Building Surveying degree. The degree apprenticeship also prepares participants to sit the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) which, on successful completion, allows participants to gain professional recognition through the award of Chartered Member status with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS).
If you have 15 or more potential apprentices, we can tailor the programme to your business.

Course length and entry requirements

The apprenticeship is usually delivered over 6 years. However, every apprentice is different and it will depend on their previous experience.

Participants attend the University on day release throughout the duration of the course. The programme adopts a predominantly work-based blended learning approach with some modules delivered through a combination of lectures, class-based seminars and discussions, and further learning opportunities such as mentoring sessions.

Eligible candidates will meet the following entry requirements

  • The usual entry requirements are GCSE (or equivalent) mathematics and English language at grade C or grade 4, or above – plus 112 UCAS points from at least two A levels, or equivalent BTEC National qualifications.

Other equivalent qualifications and relevant experience are considered individually.
