A residential surveying school based in Milton Keynes is spreading its wings this June as it delivers its first surveying course in Manchester. Following the success of recent courses across the UK, the SAVA School of Surveying will offer training for the industry-recognised Diploma in Residential Surveying and Valuation at the Copthorne Hotel in Manchester, giving those without a RICS qualifying degree the opportunity to enter the residential surveying and valuation professions.

With just 15 to 24 months of part-time study, learners at the school can gain this diploma and apply for direct entry into RICS at Associate member level via the RICS residential pathway.

Director of Surveying Services at SAVA, Hilary Grayson, comments:

“Manchester is such an active northern hub so it seemed only natural to bring this opportunity to the city. With such a variety of distinctive property types found in and around the Manchester area, it offers the perfect setting for a course that is concerned with assessing the condition of people’s homes.

“Since the qualification was launched in 2014, we have seen over 300 learners enrol onto courses for the Diploma in Residential Surveying and Valuation, and we have had the privilege of watching our graduates achieve success in both independent and national surveying firms. With so many people falling into office work only to become disillusioned in their roles, our courses give career changers a way to escape the office and pursue a more flexible and rewarding career in property surveying. The team at SAVA are very excited to be visiting Manchester this spring.”

As the SAVA School of Surveying expands its reach, offering training opportunities across the country, it is fast becoming the training provider of choice for career changers and firms looking to up-skill existing members of staff.

The school is holding an open day on Tuesday 28th March 2017 for those who want to find out more about the course and the career prospects for SAVA School graduates. For more information and to book your place at the open day, please visit
