Fee Information

By combining work and study, students will apply what you have learnt in the classroom to real-life situations in the workplace and gain a comprehensive understanding of the role of the Quantity Surveyor.

Modules include:

  • Digital Built Environment
  • Construction Law
  • Construction Technology
  • Construction Economics
  • Project Management
  • Contract Administration and Procedure

Teaching methods are varied because they are designed to get the best out of each module. As well as traditional lectures and seminars, students might take part in laboratory work, meet professional speakers, and undertake guided study sessions or self-directed independent learning.

Our assessment methods take the form of exams, research projects, reports, presentations, individual tasks, group work and project work.  During the final year, you will draw on the skills, knowledge and expertise you have developed over the last five years to complete a dissertation.

Full details on the modules for each year of the programme can be found below.

Apprentices will be taught by a diverse team of academic professionals, comprising of, surveyors, project managers, solicitors, and other construction professionals.  Their experience in the industry gives them a substantial amount of practical, as well as theoretical knowledge, to draw on in their teaching.

We take a research-led approach to all aspects of teaching. As practising researchers, our lecturers pass on the latest techniques from their ongoing work to ensure your learning is current and relevant at both an academic and a practical level.

We are a top 30 research department, with 50% of our outputs ranked world-leading or internationally excellent according to the latest UK-wide Research Excellence Framework (REF2014, UoA16)

University study will make-up 20% of the apprentice’s weekly learning and timely face-to-face contact will be essential.  Attendance at tutor-led sessions is very important, however as employees, we appreciate apprentices may unavoidably miss an occasionally taught class, therefore, all learning and teaching materials will be available via a virtual classroom and accessible to students remotely. Students will also be allocated an academic coach who will provide support in respect of academic development.

Whilst on campus, students will have access to the University’s exceptional facilities including up-to-date technology in our specialist laboratories, industry-standard IT facilities, virtual reality suites, specialist workshops, social spaces, lecture theatres and not forgetting 24/7 access to our award winner University Library. 

 

Department / Architecture and Built Environment

Architecture and Built Environment encompasses all of our teaching, research and enterprise in Architecture, Interior Architecture, Quantity and Building Surveying, Real Estate and Housing.

In partnership with Northumbria University, the organisation will support the learner at work to achieve their apprenticeship. Whilst studying the apprentice will be required to work full-time, for at least 30 hours a week, and will be supported through learning at work to achieve the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.

Both Apprentice and their Line Manager will be supported by Northumbria University throughout the programme, including access to online support materials for line managers. Apprentices will also meet with their own manager/mentor and individual professional development coach in the workplace at least four times each year.

During the programme, many assessments are work-based and aligned to the context and activity of the organisation, leading to increased organisational understanding and performance by the apprentice whilst ensuring they develop new skills and enhance productivity and business performance.

In order to complete the programme, the learner will have to demonstrate that they have obtained the relevant skills, knowledge and behaviour required during their workplace training.

Whilst off-campus and in the workplace, students will have access to our technology-enhanced learning (TEL) facilities which provide access to module information, electronic reading lists and online learning resources such as podcasts, e-books and e-journals.

The employer covers all tuition fees for the apprentice, the total payment required depends on the organisation’s apprenticeship levy status.
