International Real Estate

The course offers students the opportunity to explore international property markets whilst also learning from the real estate market and practice here in the UK. Interdisciplinary and holistic in nature, this programme examines the factors that influence the pricing of real estate, the operation of the investment and occupier markets and development processes at different spatial levels of analysis. Students take a series of core courses, choose optional courses and undertake a dissertation or a major project in international real estate. There is also an opportunity to take part in an international study trip. The real estate profession is multi-disciplinary in nature so students begin with lectures, seminars, tutorials and case studies in courses that provide an understanding of how urban economies and markets function, and the processes involved in urban development. Towards the end of semester 1 students start to develop core real estate skills and continue to build on this knowledge base in semester 2 by developing and applying core real estate skills in project, lab, field and team practice-based activities.
