UCEM opens the door for more students to gain an MSc degree

Posted on: 24 June, 2020

More Built Environment professionals around the world will be able to attain an MSc degree thanks to UCEM’s new Postgraduate Access Programme.

The Postgraduate Access Programme provides applicants with the opportunity to study one module from the final level of a UCEM BSc (Hons) degree programme which is relevant to their preferred specialism.

Upon successful completion of the module, students will be awarded a Certificate of Personal and Professional Development (CPPD) and can choose to study on the relevant MSc programme.

The Postgraduate Access Programme can be studied to progress onto UCEM’s MSc Building Surveying, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying or Real Estate programmes.

UCEM’s Director of Commercial and Business Development, Stephen Bartle, commented: “Entry requirements onto our MSc programmes are set at a certain academic standard which can be prohibitive to those people without the required level of qualifications but who are capable and willing to study at this level. The programme gives an opportunity to people in this category to prove that they can succeed at postgraduate level.

“The decision to launch the Postgraduate Access Programme 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 next start date is 5 October, 2020, with an application deadline of 24 August, 2020. To find out more, head to UCEM’s Postgraduate Access Programme webpage.
