Construction, Property and Surveying

The expertise of our accredited courses shows in our graduates' starting salaries and network of alumni in senior positions

Today we are the largest building school in the UK and 100% of our courses carry professional accreditation. This expertise shows in our graduates' starting salaries and network of alumni in senior positions.

From The Shard to Battersea Power Station, taking in the regeneration of Elephant & Castle and Nine Elms, there are swathes of new developments which will require large number of building professionals over the next decade. Our alumni hold key positions in their organisations, often as senior managers and business owners.

Each course entry has full employability details.

Accreditation and recognition

Today we are the university of choice for many students entering the architecture and construction industries throughout the UK and much of the world. We have always been at the forefront of surveying. We have awarded the first Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) professionally accredited degrees and diplomas and have been running our Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) accredited degrees in Construction Management for almost 40 years.

Many employers actively seek graduates holding accredited degrees. Accreditations are a mark of quality assurance and professional relevance, which is why it's highly relevant that all construction, property and surveying degrees at LSBU are accredited or developed in partnership with all the leading professional accrediting bodies.

Surveying

Our surveying graduates are open to a wide range of careers including professional consultancy offices, government departments, building control, building management and project management. Find out more about careers in quantity surveying and building surveying.

Property management

If you're interested in property management you could find yourself working in building control, private and social housing, or the maintaining and management of public, private, commercial and residential buildings.

Commercial and construction management

Pursuing a career in commercial or construction management could find you working in a construction or specialist firm. Your sound technical knowledge will be put together with general and project management skills to ensure professional managers are well placed to lead multidisciplinary teams in delivering many of the country's high profile projects. Find out more about careers in construction.

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses (HNC, BSc, PgDip, MSc) in construction, quantity surveying, building surveying and related fields, such as real estate and property development. Courses carry professional accreditation. The School of Built Environment and Architecture is respected by the building industry and many of our students study on a part-time basis, sponsored by their employer.

The University's location in the heart of central London is a major asset for all our students. Close to the banking and commercial centres, next-door to the city's Southbank and on the doorstep of the £1.5 billion 55-acre Elephant and Castle and Borough re-development area, this forms a rich ground for applied project work.

Construction, property and surveying students benefit from our well-placed and considered investment which brings students access to highly specialist equipment. For example, our construction laboratory includes the only tensometer in London that measures material strength in very high detail.
