**Overview**
Do you want to earn a salary and get valuable on-the-job experience while you study for a real estate degree and other professional qualifications?

Real estate covers land and property management, development, investment and valuation. This 5-year BSc (Hons) Real Estate degree apprenticeship course gives you the entrepreneurial spirit and commercial, managerial, technical and creative skills you need to tackle the various challenges of this fast-moving industry.

From the refurbishment of a small terraced house to overseeing the construction of a multi-million-pound development, the skills and knowledge you get on this course will put you at the heart of decision-making in construction projects setting you up for successful career in areas such as valuation, commercial real estate, residential property, and planning and development.

You'll spend 1 day a week studying for your degree and the other 4 days in work. The Government or your employer pay your tuition fees – so it doesn’t cost you anything. Degree apprenticeships are suitable for anyone over 18, whether you've just finished school or college or you've already started your career.

At the end of the course, you'll have a BSc (Hons) degree in real estate and 5 years of valuable on-the-job experience. You'll be eligible to register as a Chartered Surveyor with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

**On this degree apprenticeship course you'll:**
- Learn from practising surveyors and guest speakers

- Get out of the classroom with hands-on practical surveying in real buildings

You'll typically go to university 1 day a week for around 30 weeks every year to attend lectures, seminars, workshops and field trips. On the weeks you don't go to university, you'll still spend 20% of your time studying or training away from your normal working environment.

**Careers and opportunities**
This degree gives you the professional knowledge and practical experience you need to advance your career in property development, surveying and consultancy.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to take a degree that is definitely in demand? Try building! We're short of graduates in this area, so most graduates get jobs quickly. Building graduates make excellent surveyors, and that's currently one of the jobs that employers find hardest to fill, so there are great opportunities available of you want to try your hand at a surveying career. Building graduates also go into jobs in site and project management and other high skilled parts of the construction industry. There are jobs to be had in most parts of the country, so if you're technically-inclined and want to work somewhere specific, it might be worth considering this as an option. Building graduates are more likely than most to start their career with an employer who gave them work experience, so it’s particularly worth trying to secure links with industry if you take this degree.
