Course description

Are you an innovator of change who can visualise future opportunities that may have been overlooked by others? As a real estate professional, you will be responsible for everything from refurbishing a small house to multi-million-pound development schemes. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Once you complete your studies and have found your first job, you can begin training to become a Chartered Surveyor. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE The £100 million that the university has invested in its buildings and facilities over the past 10 years includes our environmental, materials, structures, hydraulics and geotechnics labs. We also have a full suite of industry standard software for Building Information Modelling (BIM). WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? This course is for students who would like to pursue a career in property and real estate. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED On this course you can visit sites and study locally based case studies that will introduce you to the professional markets and environments; you can attend and contribute to current debates by visiting guest speakers and you can venture overseas on a European field trip. You can also apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs. AFTER THE COURSE Working in property makes for an interesting, challenging and rewarding career. The roles our graduates have undertaken include: providing financial, management and strategic advice on land and property; establishing the market value of individual buildings and large-scale development projects; making investment decisions for future returns on property assets; networking with property stakeholders to provide best possible solutions; managing existing property in order to ensure the delivery of sustainable outcomes.


Our courses are designed to provide a thoroughly professional education in property development. In the first year you will have an introduction to all the elements associated with property while also developing your analytical, problem-solving and decision-making skills. In the second and third year you will have a wide range of units to study. You are able to elect specialist themes that allow you to tailor your studies to suit your career intentions or personal interests. In your final year, consolidate the skills you have learnt and complete your dissertation on a topic of your choice.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Although management degrees are a popular choice, with nearly 5,800 degrees awarded, numbers fell quite a bit last year. It's not a surprise to hear that a lot of graduates from the subject went into management, and remember that, for this degree, a lot of the jobs are in London. But management graduates tried their hands at all sorts of different jobs last year — not just those within the finance industry, but also marketing, human resources, sales, business development and accountancy. And for management grads wanting something a little left-field, our serious shortage of surveyors means well over a hundred graduates a year are taking this lucrative option. This is a flexible degree that can fit graduates for all sorts of work.
