Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)

There’s more to being a chartered surveyor than meets the eye. Surveying, in its broadest sense, concerns itself with the value of all the physical assets of the world - from major construction projects to protecting the environment, from surveying the seabed to valuing antiques.

What becoming a chartered surveyor can bring to your life:

  • The rewards can be considerable. Salaries can vary significantly, depending on the type and experience of a surveyor.  Graduate salaries compare very favourably with other professions.  The rewards aren’t purely monetary, some Chartered Surveyors devote their working lives to issues such as protecting the environment or creating sustainable housing.
  • You can work all over the world.  Most fully qualified chartered surveyors in this country will have successfully completed a RICS accredited degree course. A qualification which is recognised and credited all over the world.
  • There’s no such thing as an average day. Becoming a chartered surveyor ensures that you won’t spend your life behind a desk. Every day can be different.
  • It’s an extremely diverse profession. Surveyors come in all shapes and forms, like doctors and lawyers it’s possible to specialise in one or more fields. But, whatever a chartered surveyor’s area of expertise, they are the leading source of advice about land, property and construction all around the world.
  • Chartered surveyors shape our world. Across our world, from the places we live and work, to the places we travel to and visit, surveyors are instrumental. They get involved with varied projects such as the redevelopment of the World Trade Centre site in New York or mapping the seabed in the Indian Ocean for a oil pipeline.

Becoming a chartered surveyor is potentially one of the most exciting and diverse professions around.
