Develop these skills and prepare for a lucrative and rewarding career in this fast-paced sector with our BSc (Hons) Real Estate Development and Management with Foundation Year degree. Covering a broad range of key industry areas, the course curriculum explores the processes involved in real-estate delivery, and the strategic management techniques used by professionals.

Build in-demand professional knowledge and skills This foundation year pathway is designed to give you a strong foundation in construction, surveying and design techniques, and the essential study skills so you are ready to progress.
