By studying BSc (Honours) Real Estate you’ll focus on real-world challenges – such as achieving sustainability and climate action in the built environment, building more homes, and advancing equality, diversity and inclusion within real estate projects. How you learn All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive. On this course, you’ll put your classroom learning into practice by working on real buildings, projects and sites on field trips – ultimately leading to a successful career in the built environment. As one of the longest-running real estate courses in the UK, our teachers are not only experts in their field, they also have strong connections within the profession – giving you a headstart in your career. At every level of your course, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from industry professionals who are at the frontier of their fields. You’ll also experience the wider world of property, exploring diverse buildings, places and communities – both locally and globally. You learn through:
  • Lectures and seminars
  • Technical workshops
  • Industry visits
  • Field trips
  • Independent study
  • Practice-based learning
  • Group work
  • Work placements
Key themes You’ll learn how to inspect, value, appraise, propose, negotiate, problem solve, innovate and plan in relation to the full life-cycle of buildings and places – from their creation and use, through to their replacement. You’ll be able to apply research-based knowledge to real-world challenges – balancing economic, social and environmental goals in the name of ‘sustainable development’. You’ll also research a topic to master the investigation, data analysis and reporting skills you’ll need in professional practice. Work placements You’ll have the opportunity to arrange a year-long work placement before your final year. This gives you valuable work experience to prepare you for your future career and allows you to graduate with an Applied Professional Diploma to add to your CV. Live projects This course boasts some great hands-on, practical experience. In each year of study, you’ll work on real projects, responding to briefs set by employers, and interacting with built environment professionals. This could include investigating and profiling an employer, or working with students from other courses to creatively address environmental issues. Field trips In the first year of the course, you’ll take a field trip to a UK city (at no additional cost). Destinations previously have included Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool and London. In the second year, there’s an optional overseas field trip to a European city, (which may require additional cost contributions). Previous destinations have included Lisbon, Dublin and Berlin.  Networking opportunities Property is all about people. We’ll help you build a network of professional contacts by hosting networking events with employers. You’ll also be introduced to high-profile industry leaders through guest lecturers and masterclasses. We also have a range of notable alumni to take inspiration from, including Louise Brook-Smith OBE, the first female president of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
