School of Construction Economics and Management Part-Time Courses

The School of Construction Economics and Management at Wits University, in partnership with Wits Plus, offer a number of short courses which are credit-bearing towards the BSc Honours degrees in Quantity Surveying and Construction Management. 

In order to make programmes accessible and affordable for part-time students who may have to travel to Wits from other centres, the courses are offered over weekends. These weekends are approximately four weeks apart with lectures taking place on Saturdays and Sundays. Students sit for the same exam and undertake the same assessments as the full-time students and in many cases the courses are taught by the same lecturing staff within the school.

Students who complete any of these short courses will receive a fully accredited Wits Certificate of Competence. By offering these courses as short courses, students can plan their studies taking factors such as work load, personal circumstances and affordability into consideration.
