The UK, Singapore, Dubai, Brussels and Hong Kong are just some of the destinations where graduates of this course have gone on to work, in both rural and urban environments. Whether you wish to pursue a career in commercial, rural, residential or industrial property our Real Estate course will develop your skills, networks and confidence. Graduates have fulfilled roles at prestigious companies such as Deloitte Real Estate, Hamptons International and Savills. Accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), this is the ideal launch pad into the professional world of real estate. You will learn about acquisition, sales, letting, development and management of property interests and investments, town and country planning and building construction. Course structure You will cover rural as well as urban property issues throughout all years of the programme. The broad nature of the curriculum keeps your options open for future specialism in areas that interest you most in your final year. Modules are divided into three streams: Property, Land Use and Development and Business. You will learn through lectures, smaller group tutorials, visiting lecturers from industry, practical sessions, study visits and real-life case studies as well as completing a Research Project in a subject area of specific interest. The course is also flexible and it is possible to transfer on to the Rural Land Management degree at the end of the first year, and occasionally, at the end of the second year. Work placement In your first and second year, you are encouraged to organise your own work experience during the holidays with assistance from our Careers Team. At the end of your second year you will be placed with a firm or organisation to complete a minimum of two weeks of work experience. The one year placement in Year 3, is designed to enable students to complete a relevant enhanced work placement experience to help them identify future career choices and enhance relevant skills sets sought by employers. It is an additional module that students can choose to take after their work experience at Level 5. The module allows students to develop a deeper understanding and gain further experience in a relevant business or employment area to enhance their work experience at Level 5. Students are expected to experience and engage in various aspects of their chosen industry from an operational to practical working. Whilst not a pre-condition for entry, you are encouraged to gain, where possible, some professional work experience in a property/real estate related discipline before embarking on your programme of study. Work experience might be, for example, in one or two of the following areas, although the list is not exhaustive by any means: sales, and/or letting of residential, commercial, leisure, industrial or retail property. You might also consider the following: real estate/property management, or property/real estate asset management, real estate/property investment, town and country spatial planning, and development/re-development of property/real estate. Your work experience might be in a rural and/or urban environment.
