This well respected, internationally recognised, RICS-accredited course can be studied entirely online - with no need to attend UWE Bristol at any point. It is designed to develop the key skills you need to be highly employable.

Surveying is a standout profession. It's well respected, provides a good living, and offers the opportunity to work anywhere in the world. This distance learning course gives you a set of transferable skills that make you highly sought after in the job market, and delivers a programme of study to provide graduates of a non-associated degree with the core technical knowledge and skills that can lead to membership of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). As a student on this course, you will be able to gain free student membership of RICS.

Flexible learning of valuable skills

You'll gain an advanced understanding of concepts in real estate valuation, appraisal, development and management, and learn how to apply the theory to the real world, so you can pursue and develop your career. You'll also develop Master's-level research and analysis skills.

It's the fastest route to RICS chartered status for graduates in other disciplines you could achieve your APC within three years. The course is well regarded in the industry, with the Architecture and Built Environment department regularly approached by employers who want UWE Bristol graduates to come and work for them. We developed the course with our partner employers, to ensure we produce graduates they want to hire.
