Quantity Surveying 


The Level 6 (Professional) Quantity Surveyor pathway of the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship has been developed by a trailblazer group of employers, higher education providers and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The programme is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES).
The apprenticeship is measured against the Quantity Surveyor pathway of the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship standard and provides 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) Professional Practice in Quantity 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).
For those already in employment, the degree apprenticeship provides access to development opportunities for applicants who may already have practical experience but wish to improve their theoretical understanding, want to develop their skills further, and obtain an academic qualification and professional recognition.
If you have 15 or more potential apprentices, we can tailor the programme to your business.

Course length and entry requirements

The apprenticeship typically takes 6 years to complete. 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 blended learning approach with modules delivered through a combination of lectures, class-based seminars, practical work and site visits. The end-point assessment for the Chartered Surveyor Degree Apprenticeship is the RICS APC final assessment.
Participants will gain the BSc (Honours) Quantity Surveying award. The apprenticeship at Sheffield Hallam University is accredited by RICS and provides a distinctive pathway to full professional membership and Chartered Member status (MRICS).
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 one of the following
  • 112 UCAS points from at least two A levels, or equivalent BTEC National qualifications.

Other equivalent qualifications and relevant work experience are considered individually.
