Residential Real Estate

This course is a conversion programme for graduates from other academic disciplines and is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). It is one degree programme with three distinct pathways: Commercial real estate; residential real estate and international real estate. All three pathways are viewed as a single cohort. The programme provides applicants with all the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the real estate profession and prepares them for completing the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) to become a chartered surveyor.

Entry requirements

A good undergraduate Honours degree (2.1 or above) in a non-cognate discipline or equivalent international qualification. Applicants to this conversion programme are therefore welcome from any academic discipline (other than real estate). Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to a career in real estate, preferably through previous work experience. For non-native English speakers, an IELTS score of at least 6.5 or evidence of an equivalent level of fluency in English language is required.
