Our course has been developed using the Government-approved surveying trailblazer standards. This means that the course incorporates all the knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined by employers representative of the sector.
You'll need to be employed in a relevant role to study on this course. To find out about apprenticeship opportunities with our partner employers, visit our vacancies page.
We’ve received a great amount of support from Anglia Ruskin University to guide us through the apprenticeship process. ARU have made it as easy as possible to get new and existing employers on to the apprenticeship programme. It really has been a team effort.
The apprenticeship is very rewarding. I’m glad I chose this career path, I’m benefitting hugely from working and becoming qualified at the same time
Our work-based course ensures that it meets the needs of the industry and is adaptable to a range of employers and roles.
The assessment of the Degree Apprenticeship is constituted of three main elements:
The end point assessment is the final assessment for the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC). This is a substantial assessment and will typically take 6-9 months to complete in addition to the duration of the degree. This is a rigorous process involving extensive preparation.
The end point assessment requires you to demonstrate that you have achieved RICS defined competencies to which the apprenticeship standards have been mapped.

Studying during COVID-19
Due to national restrictions all universities in England, including ARU, are only able to provide face to face teaching on campus for a limited number of courses. Visit our restrictions page for details.
In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic the majority of our apprenticeship courses are being delivered online only using our established online learning systems. The provision offered is subject to change due to the possibility of further Government restrictions, however the University remains committed to delivering teaching and ensuring a COVID-19 secure environment for those that are on campus.
