Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' mark of quality for LJMU

Students on Built Environment programmes at LJMU are well on track for successful professional careers.

That’s because the School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment has retained its status as a RICS-accredited institution.

RICS is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and its accreditation demonstrates a globally-recognised standard of surveying in higher education.

All related undergraduate and Masters programmes - Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, Real Estate and Construction Management – achieved the re-accreditation, which ensures our students are able to continue their development into their careers, with the objective of gaining RICS professional status.

Industry links

Professor Alison Cotgrave along with Programme Leaders were instrumental in this process with Senior Lecturer James Hartwell as the LJMU RICS Lead.

James said: “it is vital to maintain links to industry to ensure our programmes are relevant, and this re-accreditation reassures and reaffirms all programme stakeholders.

“It confirms that we provide excellent teaching which includes not only current but future UK content; this is imperative to deliver students fit for purpose to aid the future success of the industry and our students alike.”
