We encourage all students to consider undertaking a placement, though it’s not compulsory and you can choose to complete the course in three years.The placement year, before your final year, will enrich your experience and offer an extended opportunity to engage with industry.
By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to apply for graduate training schemes and graduate roles in construction management. Our Careers and Employment Service offers resources and support that will help you find roles matching your interests and skills.
You could also undertake further study at postgraduate level with a course such as our Construction Project Management MSc. If you decide to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university.
Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
