Our online degree pathway, accredited by the Skills and Education Group Awards, is delivered in partnership with APC Online Training Academy, a premier organisation that specialises in delivering customised online training courses across various sectors, including quality surveying.

The Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) of candidates ensures they meet professional standards, which is a combination of technical and professional practice, as well as interpersonal and business skills.

By meeting these standards, learners can achieve accreditation from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and our online degree pathway is a stepping stone to achieving it.

What Will You Learn?

Crafted to guide learners into a career in quantity surveying, this online degree pathway emphasises the development of core capabilities. It delves into the legal aspects of construction, as well as the economic structures and organisation and management skills required in the role.

Once you have grasped the knowledge of quantity surveying, you’ll move on to the next level, developing the know-how you’ll require to perform your future role.

University Progression

Upon the successful conclusion of your first and second years with us, you are assured of receiving an admissions letter allowing you to finalise your undergraduate degree's third year at a designated university.

Study for a Degree Without Expensive Fees

If you're eager to kickstart your degree without the burden of loan fees, consider enrolling in our Quantity Surveying Online Degree Pathway, covering Year 1 and Year 2. This programme is tailored for individuals who prefer not to commit to full-time on-campus studies and are hesitant about shouldering nearly £30,000 in tuition fees. Offering a home-based alternative to the initial two years of university study, this programme provides the flexibility of online learning.

With the convenience of online education, you can break free from the constraints of fixed classes and timetables, allowing you to swiftly advance through course materials. This newfound flexibility empowers learners to expedite their journey to the final year of university compared to the traditional campus-based study.

A More Affordable Alternative

Recent changes in student finance regulations mean that university graduates will now face a doubling of their student loan repayments. This comes in addition to the requirement to start repaying their student loans once they earn an annual salary of £25,000, a decrease from the previous threshold of £27,660.

As inflation and interest rates rise in the UK amid the ongoing cost of living crisis, university graduates find themselves adversely affected. For the 2022/23 academic year, there was a looming risk of student loan interest rates reaching 12%, adding further financial strain on students.

Given the current economic uncertainty, a university graduate may find themselves burdened with an average student loan debt of £42,900, with average annual tuition fees standing at £9,250. According to YouGov, 37% of people perceive current tuition fees as unfair, prompting many to seek alternative options.

At learndirect, we provide an affordable alternative that covers the first and second years of a degree at a fraction of the cost compared to the traditional route. It's important to note that upon completing our online degree pathway, students will be required to pay the chosen university for the third year of their course.

Your Living Costs Won’t Be Affected

Enrolling in our Quantity Surveying Online Degree Pathway enables you to conveniently finish the initial two years of your degree from the comfort of your home, sparing you from the extra costs typically linked with on-campus university study. This eliminates the necessity for student housing expenses and travel costs, providing you the flexibility to study at your own pace and seamlessly integrate it into your lifestyle. Therefore, if you are currently employed, you won't need to sacrifice your work commitments for university life.
