Accreditation & recognition

UCEM works closely with the leading professional bodies in the Built Environment to ensure that our programmes provide the knowledge and understanding required to achieve chartered status. These include the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) and Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers (HKICM). All our bachelor and masters level programmes are formally accredited by at least one of these bodies. The UCEM BSc (Hons) Real Estate Management and UCEM MSc Real Estate are recognised by the Property Services Regulatory Authority (in the Republic of Ireland).

Under the current policy of the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS), graduates of UCEM programmes that are accredited by RICS are permitted to take the Assessment of Professional Competence of HKIS.
