The duration of our BSc in Construction Studies degree is 3 years followed by a one-year Honours which offers specialisation pathways in either Quantity Surveying or Construction Management.

Thus, the undergraduate programme structure allows our Construction Studies students to make their choice of Honours degree at the end of their third year.

The Construction Studies programme is accredited by the South African Council for the Quantity Surveying Profession (SACQSP); South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) and leads into honours degrees accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This means that graduates of our BSc Construction Studies degree are firmly on the track for membership of these professional bodies and are well positioned to become leaders and managers in their employment and professions.

The duration of our BSc in Property Studies degree is 4 years and the programme provides comprehensive education in the key business areas that enable promising real estate careers in the most vibrant real estate market on the African continent.

The 4-year BSc property degree has been granted conditional accreditation status by the South African Council for the Property Valuers Profession (SACPVP).
