MA Commercial Real Estate

Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Faculty of Social Sciences

Planning and investing in the spaces where we live and work has never been so important. An accredited MA from one of the UK's top planning schools can help you make a positive impact.

Since graduating I have been working for Savills on the graduate scheme. I am sure I would not have got this job without the masters. I enjoyed being a student in Sheffield and I did my undergraduate degree there too. I would highly recommend it!
