Course content

This programme is based in the Department of Geography and Environment but involves collaboration with the Departments of Accounting, Finance and Economics and offers the following benefits:

*Study in a Department with a strong group of applied urban and real estate economists and land use specialists situated in the only UK university devoted solely to the social sciences.
*Our master's programme focuses on developing graduates' ability to integrate theoretical developments with practical experience.
*Master's students are drawn from a range of disciplinary and national backgrounds and join a vibrant community of over 200 graduate students studying graduate courses within the Department.
*Our MSc graduates enter a wide variety of employment including professional firms, finance, real estate research, consultancy, the public sector and education. This is an academic programme but it benefits from a partnership agreement with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (see Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors for more information) conferring professional recognition. In addition, the Investment Property Forum, IPF, has included the programme on their selected list of graduate courses that the forum considers to provide the relevant skills necessary for those operating in the property investment market. This recognition comes with a number of benefits for our master's graduates. Graduates of the MSc REEF will be offered a fast track membership to the forum (see Investment Property Forum for more information).
