Course structure
We are now offering this degree course with a foundation year that will give you the opportunity to gain the experience and skills you will need before progressing on to the traditional parts of the programme.

In the first year of your four year programme you will be developing your academic and team-working skills and gaining confidence in written work; handling numerical and statistical data, and ICT. You will be introduced to a range of rural land use topics including, learning about the agricultural year; mapping; laboratory skills, and you will have the opportunity to gain competence in a range of practical skills. The year will help you to make the transition to being an independent learner, and perhaps an entrepreneur. Successful completion of the foundation year will allow you to proceed onto Year 1 of the course.

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. Although not a formal part of the course, at the end of your second year you will have the option to undertake a work placement year, before returning to complete your studies.

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.
