About this course

The Professional Masters programme is aimed at graduates wanting to pursue a career in the Property, Construction or Housing sector.
This incorporates a wide range of career opportunities such as;

  • housing management
  • housing development
  • commercial property management, investment and agency
  • property development
  • commercial management of construction
  • quantity surveying
  • building surveying
  • construction management
  • project management

It will provide an opportunity for those wishing to commence a career in the built environment sector from a non-cognate base. Employers are seeking out graduates who can provide added value in the form of a non-vocational first degree to go with the vocational Masters qualification. As a result, graduate employment levels are very high.

Our professional Masters courses are delivered over the following semester based structure: 

Year 1
Semester 1 - September to January (15 week schedule)

Semester 2 - February to June (15 week schedule)

Semester 3 - June to September (10 weeks study time)

Year 2
Semester 4 - September to January (15 weeks schedule)

Semester 5 - February to June (15 weeks schedule)

Semester 6 - June to September (10 weeks study time)

Modules will be assessed mainly by coursework, with some examinations. Coursework will be submitted on-line at well managed intervals during the course. Where examinations are the form of assessment, suitable locations will be identified which will be determined by student demand and place of residence.

The course accommodates students who wish to begin employment as soon as possible at graduation and provides a means of efficient access to a career beyond their undergraduate academic subject area. Because of the recognised benefits of recruiting from a high quality postgraduate base, the programme has the support of employers. On enrolling on the course students will be eligible to begin the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence.


Accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) for the purpose of graduate membership.
