Overview

As the UK's cities and towns continue to expand, there is an increased demand for experts in property and real estate management. This course reflects the real-world workings of the property and construction industries, preparing you for a career in property investment and development, property management or any number of associated areas.

You will develop a combination of technical knowledge and professional skills by studying the planning, building, maintenance and day-to-day management of properties from domestic dwellings to full-scale industrial and commercial units. Key topics at the heart of the course include estate and property management; portfolio management; valuation for mortgages; negotiation for sale, purchase, leasing or auction; and the financial aspects of real estate, including the financing of real estate projects. You will explore the impact of urban and regional planning policies on property management and gain the skills to work with planners to enhance commercial development proposals within a given timescale and budget.

Working closely with other built environment students, you will take part in projects that mirror the professional relationships you will experience in industry. This will develop your sense of identity as a property manager and provide you with an understanding of the role played by bankers, accountants, developers, surveyors and investors in the real estate industry.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. This will give you the opportunity to apply your real estate knowledge in professional practice, helping to ensure your CV stands out from the crowd when you graduate. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV.

Our part-time course is also a great option if you are already working in industry. 

The course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Accredited by:

As part of the School of Built Environment & Engineering, you will be able to take advantage of our relationships with local, regional and national employers. The School is home to the Centre for Knowledge Exchange (CKE), an enterprise hub that connects the work of the University with the regional built environment sector. Through the CKE's seminars, workshops and events, you will have the opportunity to meet industry experts and to make connections to help you enhance your knowledge of the workplace and prepare for life after graduation.

You will be taught by expert staff whose knowledge is not just theoretical - the course team all have extensive experience working in industry and will use their experience to enhance your learning and ensure it is relevant.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre.
