Why did you choose to study at the RAU?

The RAU was a convenient university for me to attend as I can commute. I expected that living off-campus would be a disadvantage socially, however I was proved wrong as there are constantly events and social activities to get involved in. At the RAU you are surrounded by friendly, hardworking and like-minded students. Due to it being a smaller university, everyone knows each other and the lecturers make time for you, you’re not just a number.

What is the best part about this course for you?

The large variety and range of modules covered always keeps the course exciting. I enjoy learning new things, so a career with CPD (continuing professional development) appealed to me. The process is in place to ensure that you are constantly up to date with new technology, techniques and training. This is necessary with such a diverse and developing industry.

The Real Estate degree is desirable to me as it is accredited by RICS, which is a very reputable organisation. As I aspire to be a member of RICS in the future, I can be assured that my degree will be relevant and recognised by the leading professional body for qualifications and standards in land, property, infrastructure and construction.

What are you enjoying the most about studying at the RAU?

It is such an incredible atmosphere, the students are so like-minded. It is so easy to find your way around, you will settle down and feel at home in no time. 

What would you say to a prospective student thinking about choosing your course at the RAU?

The course has a good balance between practical and theory, which will provide you with the right skills you need within the profession. It covers a vast range of different modules in Real Estate, law, economics and valuation. You will learn accounting techniques, surveying, and building technology which are both exciting and relevant to the profession. The lectures are very passionate and experienced in their careers, most are still in practice so they have the most current and relevant industry knowledge.
