There are two main types of RICS qualification – Associate (AssocRICS) and Chartered (MRICS):

  • Associate is the entry-level RICS qualification and offers the chance to progress to full chartered status

  • Chartered is the most common way to qualify as most people already have surveying-related qualifications and work experience.

To qualify as an Associate or Chartered member, you will have to pass a series of assessments.

We offer different flexible ways through the assessment process, and will support you throughout your journey to qualifying as a member. 

Associate (AssocRICS)

Associate Member is available on completion of the associate qualification. You can enrol at any time in your career but must meet one of the following before applying for assessment:

  • 4 years of relevant experience (no qualifications required).
