You will normally be expected to hold at least an Upper Second Class Honours degree (which need not be in a cognate subject) and should ideally (although not essentially) be in relevant employment in a professional or managerial capacity in a property or construction related organisation. Alternatively, applicants may hold membership of a recognised property or construction-related professional body achieved through examinations and/or professional interview, ideally together with experience in a professional or managerial capacity in a property or construction-related post.
Consideration will be given to mature applicants who lack standard qualifications but have significant professional or managerial experience in a property or construction-related post. Such applicants will be interviewed prior to admission and will be expected to demonstrate the commitment and intellectual capacity to study at postgraduate level.

The Property Finance Postgraduate Certificate course is ideal for those looking to gain a greater understanding of Property Finance, who don't wish to study for the full Masters course.
Property Finance is a well-established area of essential expertise within the real estate industry for the purchase and development of properties which may have varying levels of complexity. The finance specialist utilises modern skills, techniques and systems to successfully source and provide an adequate flow of accessible funds to buy, sell and develop land and buildings.
This course is intended to give you a detailed understanding of property finance and the associated property appraisal techniques and processes, encompassing both legal and social aspects. You will analyse investment and development finance situations and respond to particular financial problems with derived solutions. You will also be able to appraise options and independently evaluate alternative courses of action.
The design of the course recognises the significant challenges of providing an educational experience that is practical, relevant and challenging. The programme, while still providing the discipline and structure of regular attendance at the University, aims to give a practical educational structure through workshops and projects.
