Gavin Scriven

“The content of the course was very relevant to the degree I applied for and the lecturers were all passionate and had practical experience, as well as academic. The facilities were great too, and when I wrote my dissertation at university, I came back to GC and spoke to my lecturer about the building, which was the subject of my case study.”

“My dream career is being a commercial building surveyor. This course formed the cornerstone of my progression from college to university; gaining a work placement year and then on to graduating and working for the best firm of surveyors that are in the market.”

“The course provided greater depth and breadth of learning than the first year and a half of my degree and was invaluable in me achieving a first class honors. It was far more relevant to my degree than just undertaking A Levels. When I got to university, I was far more prepared for the assignments than other students and I firmly believe it was because of this course.”

The type and variety of work the construction industry offers is second to none. I knew that I would require a degree and that I didn’t have any experience or relevant qualifications. This course offered directly comparable and transferable subjects that helped me with my degree and further on my chosen career.”
