University College of Estate Management is a global centre of excellence in construction, property, and estate management.

With over 95 years’ experience of providing the highest quality learning opportunities, it helps to enhance Built Environment professional careers through its accredited property-related and construction programmes, offered at Postgraduate, Undergraduate and Apprenticeship levels.


UCEM, as a registered higher education provider with the Office of Students and a registered charity, works to ensure value for money for all students through its activities. We publish an annual Value for Money Statement which provides information on UCEM’s income and expenditure.

Accessible learning

UCEM is the leading provider of supported online education for the built environment, at any one time, UCEM has more than 4,000 students from more than 100 countries benefiting from our qualifications taught by tutors with extensive industry experience.


UCEM has pledged to tackle the Climate Change and Biodiversity Emergency and supports Carbon Zero: the professional institutions’ climate action plan. The University College sailed through its third sustainability accreditation audit, achieving its best-ever score on the SOS-UK Responsible Futures accreditation.

Accreditation and Recognition

UCEM works closely with the leading professional bodies in the built environment to ensure that their programmes provide the knowledge and understanding required to achieve chartered status.

These include:

  • Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
  • Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)
  • Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE)
  • Chartered Management Institute (CMI)
  • Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES)

UCEM is making tremendous impact in tackling the climate emergency, not only through their sustainability initiatives, but also, in shaping the future of the built environment to be more sustainable. UCEMs newest MSc Innovation in Sustainable Built Environments addresses the increased appetite for sustainability and environmental skills across the built environment.


The institution has been successful in applying to the Office for Students (OfS) for permanent degree awarding powers – referred to as ‘indefinite degree awarding powers’ which is an authorisation given to higher education providers to grant awards without a time limit.


“This is an incredibly exciting landmark for UCEM as an institution and I look forward to delivering our vision to be the Centre of Excellence for Built Environment Education.”


UCEM Deputy Principal, Jane Fawkes
