This course is designed to prepare you for a demanding and rewarding career in real estate, in either the private or the public sector. The course provides accreditation by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and gives a route to chartered status.
You’ll develop knowledge and understanding of real estate and its role in the wider economy. Your study will give you the analytical skills necessary for successful property investment, development and management. You’ll also learn research skills and find out how research applies to real estate and real estate markets.
In previous years we have travelled to London for our field trip where students meet employers and recruitment specialists. We are currently planning arrangements for 2020/2021 and will update our website when plans are confirmed. Students will still get the opportunity to meet with industry representatives and learn about opportunities in the sector as part of this field trip.
There are lectures, seminars, computer workshops and tutorials.
You’re assessed on your coursework and a dissertation.
