RGU surveying course gains international accreditation

Robert Gordon University’s (RGU) Surveying degree has successfully been accredited by the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia following the visit of a panel to the university.

Malaysian accreditationThis further strengthens RGU’s Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment presence in the country, having gained accreditation for the Master of Architecture course by the Malaysian Board of Architects earlier in the year.

Malaysia represents a key area of focus for the school in terms of developing a strong market presence that will lead to student recruitment, progression arrangements with selected universities and colleges, and potential strategic partnerships.

Professor David McClean, Head of the School, said: “The School’s success in gaining accreditation for the BSc (Hons) Surveying course from the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia is critical to the development of the Malaysian market.

“As well as significantly enhancing the market appeal of the course in-country, it also opens up exciting potentials for collaboration, articulation, and strategic partnership.

“We will now embark on activity aimed at furthering the considerable transnational education opportunities that exist. Success in this rigorous process serves as further testimony to the quality of our provision, and to the hard work of colleagues and students.”

RGU’s Surveying course, which is accredited in the UK by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, provides students with the professional and creative skills required for a successful career in surveying. The taught course is complemented by eight month’s practical experience, allowing students to gain valuable experience of surveying practice in a range of locations worldwide.
