The Salford Experience

Get ready to study

Top applicant questions - answered!

What does it mean if my course is accredited?

Degree accreditation is acknowledgement, by an external body, that a programme meets a defined set of criteria. BSc (Hons) Construction Project Management, BSc (Hons) Building Surveying, BSc (Hons) Quantity Surveying and BSc (Hons) Property and Real Estate are each accredited by external bodies, including the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES). 

How will I be assessed during my course?

Across our built environment programmes, students are assessed using a combination of methods, including design projects, essays, precedent studies, case study analysis and examinations.

Will the university help me to find work experience and industry placements?

Whilst students are responsible for securing their own work experience and industry placements, our tutors will guide and support you through the process. Industry experience not only enables you to apply your knowledge in real-world situations but allows you to form those vital connections early on in your career. We have links with a range of leading organisations and, where possible, will assist students in securing placements.

What career opportunities will be open to me once I graduate?

There is a huge demand for qualified surveyors, project managers and construction technologists, both in the UK and internationally. As a trained professional, you can expect to find roles in a wide range of organisations, including construction companies, project management consultancies, and government departments.

Our built environment alumni have progressed on to work at leading industry organisations, including: Lend Lease, Kier, Laing O'Rourke, Simons Construction Ltd, Balfour Beatty, Gleeds Construction Consultants, National Grid, Delouitte Real Estate, Savills and Skanska.
