Course Introduction

This course is for students who wish to obtain an honours degree in surveying accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). It focuses on the core skills that are needed to become a chartered building surveyor. Surveyors are involved in the building industry, both in building inspections and in construction projects.
