MPRE Master of Planning with Real Estate with a Professional Placement is a five-year enhanced undergraduate degree which gives you real-world experience and key employability skills, and is accredited by both the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The curriculum of Years 1, 3 and 4 are the same as our BSc Planning and Real Estate, in which you will consider the issues faced by professionals in dealing with the planning, development and management of all aspects of our built and natural environments. In the third year of study you will embark on a paid work placement with an organization engaged with planning, environment, urban design and/or real estate to apply the conceptual, digital and communication skills you practice. The fifth year of study is at taught master's level and provides professional training in real estate. However, if you change your mind about your future career, you can choose to exit the MPRE after four years and graduate with a BSc Planning and Real Estate. Understanding and engaging with the problems facing the communities and places in which we live, work and play is at the heart of what we do in the department of Planning and Environmental Management at The University of Manchester. Effective planning, development and management of our towns, cities and countryside is crucial in an age when governments and societies all over the world are struggling to deliver sustainable development. Understanding and engaging with the problems facing the communities and places in which we live, work and play is at the heart of what we do in the Department of Planning and Environmental Management at The University of Manchester. MPRE Master of Planning with Real Estate satisfies the spatial planning curricula for initial qualification with the RTPI and the Commercial Property Practice, Valuation, and Planning and Development pathways. Manchester is a great place to study real estate and planning. It is a major UK city undergoing rapid urban change, which provides an ideal base for exploring urban development pressures and how these shape economic, social and environmental futures. The changes to the city mean that understanding how we finance and manage investment, and what this means for further development are critical factors in effective growth. The city is also ideally placed for you to learn about a wide variety of rural environments which have interesting implications, including three spectacular National Parks, areas of intensive farming and impressive coastlines.
