This is a major win for our students and graduates and puts the Construction Management level 7 and level 8 programmes on a very firm footing for the future with a globally recognised accreditation. I’d also like to take this opportunity to commend all the staff and students involved in the arduous accreditation application process, it was a great example of teamwork and the staff’s passion for high quality education, teaching and their students futures”.
