Surveyors can take on many different tasks and roles during their careers, depending on their qualifications and level of experience.

Meanwhile, those in university complete their degree as a graduate surveyor, with some choosing to specialise in other related fields like geospatial information systems.
Graduate surveyors can further their career opportunities and remuneration by undertaking a professional training agreement to become a licensed surveyor.
