Course summary

Real estate is a dynamic profession; every company and every person requires somewhere to work and somewhere to live, and as property costs are often the second-highest expenditure on a company's balance sheet, a good understanding of property is essential for every business.

This course gives you a thorough understanding of all aspects of real estate including buying and selling, valuing, developing, planning, managing and investing in various property markets, together with the transferable skills necessary for lifelong professional and personal development. Many of our lecturers are chartered surveyors who have held senior appointments in business, and many are still practising part-time. As we are based in London we are able to invite directors of leading property firms to deliver guest lectures and arrange various site visits.

As real estate is not taught at school, students have a wide variety of A-Levels and qualifications. The most important requirements are an analytical mind, a clear motivation towards the course and the desire to develop an enjoyable and potentially high-earning career.

Our Real Estate BSc Honours course provides a professionally oriented education, producing graduates capable of dealing with all aspects of property and development. The learning and teaching of the course consist of a variety of formats including lectures, seminars, presentations, group work and visiting lectures. The range of assessment methods includes exams, essays and group and individual project work and presentations.
