Why choose UCEM?

Whatever stage you are at with your study, UCEM programmes will give you the knowledge, direction and confidence you need to develop your professional career in the Built Environment.  Read more about our vision and strategy here.


UCEM are focused on providing industry-accredited qualifications through supported online education, accessible from anywhere in the world.  Rather than attending lectures or classes, you’ll use our online learning environment which you can access at any time. This means you can study around your work or personal commitments without the need to attend formal classes.


We are also able to offer students the flexibility to speed up or slow down their studies, as we know that personal or work circumstances can change.


UCEM prides itself on offering a cost-effective route to professional accreditation. Not only are our fees competitive, we can offer a range of funding options to help students. Please see our fees and funding pages for more details.

Aligned to professional industry standards

Our programmes are accredited by the leading Built Environment professional bodies, including RICS, CIOB and CABE, ensuring we are aligned to their professional pathways and the requirements for their professional memberships.

Professional network

With more than 4,000 students studying with us from 100 countries, there’s plenty of opportunity to connect with other students through your module forums. Students using the forums can form valuable connections whilst studying, or when they move over to our Alumni Association, where they join our growing alumni community – since 1919 we’ve educated more than 150,000 students.
