    The course

    The industry has an increasing need for suitably qualified people in many different landbased sectors. We can develop your professionals to manage these complex assets to meet RICS professional standards that will guarantee the quality and ethics of their service.

    Upon successful completion of this course, you will achieve a BSc (Hons) Rural Enterprise and Land Management degree and then progress to the APC for full Chartered Membership of the RICS as part of the End Point Assessment.

    This apprenticeship follows the Chartered Surveyor standard.

    Entry requirements

    The entry requirement for the degree apprenticeship will typically be a minimum of three A levels at Grade C or higher, their equivalent (in UCAS points) or a Level 3 apprenticeship in a construction or property related discipline. Current employees who already have experience in the industry, who would like to become an apprentice, can discuss enrolment with our team of specialists who will advise. Apprentices must have the right to work in England.

    Apprentices without GCSE English and Maths (A*-C or 9 - 4) or equivalent will need to achieve this level prior to enrolment. This can be funded separately and taken at a local college or provider.

    What will I study?
