What opportunities does the Diploma offer?
The Diploma is an industry-recognised Level 6 qualification and covers everything a professional residential surveyor and valuer needs to know. There is a nationwide shortage of residential surveyors so as soon as you’ve qualified there will be a range of interesting career options available to you.
- Direct entry into RICS You will be able to join the prestigious Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) at Associate level via their direct entry residential pathway. Unlike other routes into RICS which require two years of work experience prior to entry, the Sava Diploma bypasses this requirement meaning you can apply for membership immediately after graduating.
- Registered Valuers Scheme Once you are a member, you can then begin offering RICS surveys and take advantage of the many benefits that RICS has to offer. You will also gain direct entry into the RICS Registered Valuers Scheme, a requirement from lenders if you wish to undertake property valuations.
- Sava Certification Scheme You can also join the Sava Certification Scheme and produce the Sava Home Condition Survey for customers.
