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.

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.
