Course content

Our distance learning Real Estate Investment Finance (REIF) programme has been designed for real estate professionals across all sectors. As well as fund managers and investment bankers who would like to develop their understanding of real estate as a financial asset in an investment portfolio.

We designed the REIF programme to give you the practical skills needed to succeed, while also offering a flexible and innovative way to study from home. It gives you the opportunity to share knowledge and experience in real life situations.

The four 'stand-alone’ core modules enable you to start at any of the four entry points throughout the year. Each module is organised around six learning packages. This allows you to work at your own pace and keep track of your learning.
