Months of entry
The Royal Agricultural University is in partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which fully accredits this one-year Masters degree.
Real estate has become a global market, with many organisations having interests throughout the world. This gives rise to a need for advisers with a clear understanding of the way in which real estate markets function and an ability to quickly analyse the systems and institutions that underpin a market.
Our graduates have joined major urban and rural real estate companies and advisory practices worldwide, fulfilling roles in areas such as valuation, investment, strategic corporate real estate and development advice, agency and market infrastructure.
This course recognises the need for new graduates with an international perspective and offers an invaluable international case study placement for full-time UK students, who will be supported by a mentor in the workplace, and an international study visit for part-time students.
The course will be studied full-time over 13 months at the RAU in Cirencester, or part-time over 20 months in Hong Kong. The Research Project is carried out over the summer and submitted the following October.
If you are studying the course full-time, you will spend the first two terms studying on campus in Cirencester and the third term on a work placement in an appropriate overseas location. Recent students were engaged in a live structured case study in Hong Kong.
You will undertake four ‘live scenario’ case studies, in an interactive workshop format. Case studies will be assessed through written reports, oral examinations and other assessments. University staff, visiting practitioners and site visits will provide insights and guidance to enable you to gain knowledge and understanding through investigation, reading and active practical learning.
