Course overview

Real estate has become a global asset entity. It provides homes in communities, underpins a dynamic economy, and has significant environmental and energy security implications. To service this critical sector industry looks for independently-minded and competent graduates with domestic and international awareness.

This rigorous and challenging programme equips students with the intellectual mind-set, vocationally orientated knowledge and professional competencies to evalutate markets, property investments and development projects. If you have professional real estate career aspirations it prepares you to enter practice.

For those seeking a career in real estate, the RICS accredited MSc Real Estate degree provides full-time and part-time routes to complete professional status. Students gain a well-regarded mixed general practice real estate qualification, with the possibility of international, residential and other specialisms. In other sectors, a MSc Real Estate qualification differentiates you and enhances your professional standing.

After graduation, full-time students who complete two years of professional training can register for the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) and apply for MRICS designation as a Chartered Surveyor. Part-time students, if in approved relevant work, may apply for their APC registration upon enrolment to the programme.

The MSc also offers multiple opportunities for professional enrichment, including: site visits to live developments, industry guest speakers, Real Estate Society events, and the possibility of an overseas field trip (subject to numbers and at extra cost) which in recent years has included trips to Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
