Course description

Who studies rural estate, property and land management courses? Those who are interested in estate/property and land management and a desire to work in an exciting, dynamic industry. If the prospect of dealing with rural, commercial or residential property appeals to you, you have come to the right university. There are currently around 300 ‘Realmies’, as students studying land management courses are affectionately known here, and that figure is rising steadily. The Rural Property Management degree prepares students to manage rural estates and all their diverse assets. Students will learn about maintaining and developing estate property and managing agricultural, residential and commercial tenancies. Students will also learn development and marketing skills enabling them to diversify and enhance rural estates to grow their income stream. The course is approved by the RICS and concentrates on the rural pathway but students can follow residential, commercial or other routes. RICS candidates must go on to complete the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC), which involves two years of structured work experience, training and assessment. The placement year usually counts as the first APC year; the second is undertaken after graduation.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
About 70% of the UK's land area is given over to agriculture, so this is a subject representing an important part of the country's economy. Typical starting jobs for graduates in agriculture include agricultural science, farming and farm management, but graduates also go into other areas, such as the horticulture trade, auctioneering and conservation. Agriculture graduates are also in increasing demand for one of the hardest-to-fill jobs in the country - surveying. Jobs for agriculture graduates are often in rural areas - in 2016, areas like Essex, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Yorkshire and Kent were all important for agriculture graduates.
