Applications for the 2019 Graduate Scheme are NOW CLOSED.

2020 applications will reopen on 1st October 2019.

Can I apply?

Although our typical applicants study RICS accredited undergraduate or postgraduate degrees in Real Estate or Building Surveying, we welcome students from ANY degree discipline who can demonstrate a genuine desire to begin a career as a surveyor.


If you wish to apply to our scheme but do not already have a RICS accredited degree, you will (if successful) be required to undertake a part-time RICS accredited postgraduate conversion degree in Real Estate.

This is usually fully-sponsored and takes 2 years to finish. This must be completed before you can sit your APC so non-cognates typically take 2.5 years to qualify. 

We do not accept non-cognate graduates for Building Surveyor vacancies.

What  next?

Shortlisting: Once the application window has closed on the 30th November, all applications are reviewed and a shortlist compiled. At this stage all applicants will receive an email to advise if they have been successful or not.

First interviews: Interviews typically take place in early-mid January at the office you have selected. Typically our interviews take 60-75 mins and include competency questions and a short verbal technical assessment. If successful at first interview you will be invited to attend an assessment centre (London only) OR a second interview.

Assessment centres:  Assessment centres are held in our London office usually towards the end of January. They typically last for 2.5 hours and include an individual presentation, group task and individual written exercise. Shortly after, final selections will be made and successful applicants will be notified by phone.

LSH are part of the Property Training Forum Charter.
