Armed Forces students

Use your ELCs to progress a career in Property and Construction

Whether you already have a Property or Construction based role in the Armed Forces and are looking to progress your career or you’re leaving the forces and want a new career direction, one of our qualifications will help you achieve your goals.

With 97 years’ experience and a royal charter, our heritage and strength is unparalleled. A UCEM qualification is an internationally recognised demonstration of your knowledge and will certainly help you progress.

Our programmes are taught by a team of academics and industry practitioners, many of whom are prominent experts in their field.

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and are based all around the world. Whatever your career aspirations you will find likeminded students studying alongside you.

What happens if I’m posted abroad?

All our programmes are delivered online via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which includes a comprehensive e-library and study support materials. As you progress, material for each module will be made available on the VLE and supplemented where necessary with textbooks. You can study anywhere in the world as long as you have a computer and internet access. If you’re posted somewhere without reliable internet access then you can discuss your study options with our support team.

Our VLE is a worldwide virtual community, where you can join your fellow students and tutors in discussion forums. There are also areas where you can post your administrative queries, which will be answered by the student support team.

We have examination centres in 100 countries worldwide, so you don’t need to be in the UK to sit your exams.
