MSc Rural Estate Management

My RAU experience

Growing up in a rural area, I soon realised that I wanted an agriculturally oriented career. After reading geography at Exeter University, the MSc in Rural Estate Management at the Royal Agricultural University stood out by a country mile.

It is intensive but also great fun and has the advantage of being vocational, embedding specialist skills and knowledge relevant to my future working life in professional practice as a Land Agent; its automatic RICS accreditation is a huge bonus.

The MSc undoubtedly broadened my horizons and is seen by employers as an ideal training ground.

What I gained from the RAU 

The MSc undoubtedly broadened my horizons, preparing me well for my career, and is seen by employers as an ideal training ground. I and my fellow students, now studying for the Assessment of Professional Competence and Central Association of Agricultural Valuers examinations, fulfil a wide variety of roles within organisations ranging from small to national firms and private estates.

I have no hesitation in recommending the MSc in Rural Estate Management to others.
