Higher Certificate in Construction (Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications).
This course is offered under the ACCS Scheme. ACCS is an acronym for “Accumulation of Credits and Certification of Modules”. This scheme allows students instead of studying the entire course - to study one or more modules of the course.
Modules passed, are certified individually, and can be accumulated, leading to an award of the Higher Certificate in Science in Construction. The modules to be offered in any year will be decided in consultation with the students. The accumulation of sufficient credits for the award currently involves an average of three years study for the Higher Certificate in Construction.
Among the areas you would be required to study are:
Construction Technology, Building & Environmental, Measurement and Procedures, Organisation and Management, Construction Mathematics, Construction Graphics and Communications, Construction Industry and Procedures, and Materials and Structures.
Construction Technology, Building and Environmental, Measurement and Estimating, Management, Construction Economics, Construction Law, Cost Planning, and Land Surveying.
Qualified students are eligible to apply for the BSc in Quantity Surveying or the BSc in Construction Management.
