About Construction Management at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

Further your career in construction. Get insight into building design, production, management, and technologies with our part-time, CIOB-accredited degree course.

The construction industry is one of the most dynamic, diverse and significant in the world.

We live, work and play in the built environment - and our Construction Management foundation degree will develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of the technology and management involved in its creation.

Our part-time course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and ranked in the top 25% in the UK for overall satisfaction (National Student Survey, 2020). It will prepare you for work in construction or construction project management. You'll also have the opportunity to progress onto our specialist BSc (Hons) Construction Management, and gain a full honours degree.

Construction has three stages: pre-construction in which design, costs and feasibility are finalised; construction, when the work is undertaken; and post-construction, which covers subsequent operation and maintenance.

By studying FdSc Construction Management course at ARU, you'll gain insight and understanding of these key stages.

You'll also explore the processes involved throughout the built asset life-cycle. These range from building design and technology, to resource management (people, materials and equipment), project administration and stakeholder engagement as carried out within regulatory, legal, economic and social contexts - all with reference to the latest developments in digital technology and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Put your learning to the test on site visits and in our specialist facilities, including site-standard surveying equipment and a dedicated computer suite offering the latest in CAD, project management and financial software. We also have labs for geotechnics, hydraulics, structures, engineering materials and concrete-testing.

As well as practical construction know-how, our part-time Construction Management course also focuses on communication, numerical, IT, teamwork, analytical and problem-solving, and self-management skills. You'll learn to predict and analyse potential problems in building, and to create workable and economic solutions.

What students think about Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts

    Testimonial from Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "The UK has a long and distinguished history of art and design. At the same time, it has a lot of modern and avant-garde academic and industry knowledge and experience. This deeply attracted me to study in the UK and apply to the MA Illustration and Book Arts course at the Cambridge School of Art with its 160-year history. It is a very forward-looking subject, combining new technologies, traditional skills and art theories.

    I hope to improve my creative thinking, illustration skills and understanding of book art through the course. I would like to interpret traditional culture and show the world we live in by applying creativity and new techniques.

    I started the autumm trimester online due to the travel situation and am going to Cambridge in January. The MA course is very interesting but challenging at the same time. There are both theoretical and practical modules, such as Sequence and Series. I have to do a lot of academic reading with new academic terms.

    My tutors are very helpful and encouraging. After a few weeks of study, I can clearly see my own progress and achievements, in academic English reading as well as the understanding of theoretical concepts. I have tried to read extensively, including journal articles and art books."

    Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management

    Testimonial from Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "I joined ARU two and half years ago and I made it my mission to get involved in everything I could.

    In the very first few months of university, I took part in ARU’s intern programme, working in the Faculty of Business and Law, which gave me the chance to develop my skills, get mentoring and grow both personally and professionally.

    Because ARU is such a vibrant environment, it was easy to get involved with more and I soon became a Student Ambassador, working during Open Days. Working closely with ARU’s staff made me feel so supported and encouraged that I even found the courage to challenge myself and deliver student life talks for the university and co-deliver welcome talks with faculty staff.

    I was also a course rep, which has now led me to represent the whole faculty. This is excellent for my CV as well making sure our students' voices are heard.

    All of these opportunities have built up and helped me believe in myself, in my abilities and, most importantly, boost my confidence. Of course, they are excellent for professional progression and my CV, too."

    Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health

    Testimonial from Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Moving to a foreign country for me was extremely challenging, but right now, I am proud of my decision. I am from Lithuania, and my trip started from there. It was not easy to say goodbye to my family, friends and hobbies, but it was a new beginning in my life.

    The first day at university was scary, but at the same time, exciting. I didn't know anyone, and I was not very confident about my English level. Freshers’ Week helped me to meet new people, understand what I should expect from life in the UK and find new activities which I would do for the entire year. Day by day I started to make more connections and friends who became a part of my life at ARU.

    I spent the first month adapting to my new beginning. I had to buy lots of stuff for my room and kitchen. Moreover, I started to explore the city which would be my home for three years. Also, I met my tutors for the first time, and I started to get acquainted with the UK study system. At the beginning, for me, understanding the British accent was most challenging. I started to worry: could I do this? I was shy to ask or to say anything during class, even when I knew the right answer.

    After a few weeks, things started to get better. I started to understand my tutor better and get involved in the class. Finally, I had to comprehend that it was my new life and it was set to be a unique and unforgettable experience.
