Facilities management

Recognising the multidisciplinary nature of the property profession and its role in business, this BSc Real Estate programme seeks to develop a mix of property and business skills so that you will be well equipped to make sound business decisions based on an in-depth understanding of the commercial property market.

Recognising the multidisciplinary nature of the property profession and its role in business, this BSc Real Estate programme seeks to develop a mix of technical and professional skills so that you will be well equipped to make sound commercial decisions based on an in-depth understanding of the real estate markets.

The course starts by covering the building blocks of real estate such as property law, construction and valuation theory and you will then go on to develop professional and practical skills in complementary subject areas such as facilities and asset management.

The course is built around the following key themes which, together with work experience and project tasks that simulate working practices, will give you the knowledge and practical skills to launch your career as a real estate professional:

- Technical knowledge, for example valuation methodologies from first principles through to advanced techniques and software application, building technology and defects

- Legal knowledge, including property and land law, the law of contract and tort and the relationship between landlord and tenant

- Real Estate practice, including property appraisal, real estate investment and management, facilities management and professional practice.

The course also offers a sandwich route which involves a paid placement where you can apply what you have learned at LJMU out in the workplace. Such experience will enhance both your professional skills development and your CV, boosting your employment prospects after graduation.

Students not undertaking a placement year are registered on the non-Sandwich version of the programme and will have the opportunity of an additional study year abroad following Level 5, providing students with an additional year of study at an approved overseas partner that will complement their programme at LJMU.

Assessment methods

Assessment varies depending on the modules you choose, usually a combination of exams and coursework.

All students perform differently depending on the type of assessment they are asked to do, and so a variety of assessment methods are used. These include exams (open and closed book), coursework (projects, technical reports, reviews, etc), and presentations (individual and group).

Your tutors will give prompt and constructive feedback via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face or in writing. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
