UCEM launches flexible route to BSc (Hons) study for an uncertain world

Posted on: 29 June, 2020

The full-time online Certificate of Higher Education Built Environment Studies enables students to undertake all of UCEM’s BSc (Hons) level 4 modules. On completion, they can choose to continue for a further two years and complete their BSc (Hons) with UCEM or use it as a foundation for study elsewhere.

If choosing to continue their studies with UCEM, all the modules studied will count towards their degree and students will progress to the level 5 stage of their chosen programme (Year 2) whether in Building Control, Building Surveying, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying or Real Estate Management.

UCEM’s Director of Commercial and Business Development, Stephen Bartle, commented: “The Certificate of Higher Education is a great offer for those who want to try out one of our undergraduate programmes without committing straight away to a full BSc.

“We see the programme benefitting school leavers and those wanting a holistic overview of the Built Environment. If you are unsure about committing to a full BSc (Hons) degree or even online learning, this gives you the chance to study for a shorter amount of time and either finish with the Certificate of Higher Education or continue with us to attain the degree.

“The decision to launch the Certificate of Higher Education was taken as part of the review of our academic offer during the pandemic where we have identified ways we can better support the sector with its educational needs, by making our offer as accessible and flexible as possible.”

The Certificate of Higher Education can also be studied part-time for 18 months.

The next start date for the Certificate of Higher Education Built Environment Studies is 5 October, 2020, with an application deadline of 24 August, 2020. Head to UCEM’s Certificate of Higher Education webpage for more details.
