Property Development and Planning

Our MSc Property Development and Planning course equips you to oversee and manage the process of property development, from site identification and analysis, to planning, design, viability, marketing and finance, ultimately leading to the delivery of a development scheme. You will focus on adding value to land and property, as an adviser, consultant or developer. This course develops the skills needed to pursue Chartered Surveyor status. This course is aimed at professionals and graduates wishing to pursue a career in the property and construction industries and professions, on route to Chartered Surveyor status. **It's suitable for prospective students who don't necessarily have a background in property or construction**, acting as a fast-track conversion course for those with an unrelated undergraduate degree (or professional qualification) to obtain an accredited route into the industry. In addition, this course is suitable for property and construction professionals working in industry, who wish to specialise in planning and development. **Key features** - Study trips to live sites in the UK and abroad are included in your course fees, designed to help develop your understanding of theory in practice. Previous study trip destinations have included Budapest, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Prague. - Have the option of taking a professional or industrial internship, which counts towards your Masters qualification. - Learn from expert academic staff, who have established links to industry and significant industry experience. - Have the opportunity to work with an industry mentor - often an NTU alumnus. In previous years, these relationships have led to work experience and employment.
