•Commercial real estate makes a major contribution to the economy and the capital invested in property has created demand for Chartered Surveyors with specialist skills in valuation, investment appraisal, asset management and sustainability.

•Property plays a key role in business and investment, and there is a need to maximize the return from, and productivity of, real estate assets. This requires professional expertise. A surveyor needs to be aware of the wide range of principles that underpin the valuation, management, investment, development and sustainability of real property assets.


Working with industry practitioners, the MSc Real Estate Management and Investment course will allow you to gain knowledge of the wide range of principles that underpin property investment assets; including economics, property law, property valuation, asset management, the principles of sustainable urban property development, and the skills to apply these effectively.

Whatever your background, this course, which is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), will equip you with the knowledge to become a competent and resourceful professional, ready to go straight into a career as a Surveyor in the fast-paced property market.


There is some £680 billion invested in UK commercial property stock and just over half of this is held as investment assets. Within the residential sector, the private rented sector alone has a value of £840 billion. These real estate assets all require on-going strategic and active management.

Real Estate investment is a global trend and as such there are opportunities to work across the world, particularly within the multinational practices.


You will develop your ability to analyse, assess and synthesise solutions to problems and gain an understanding of the business drivers and constraints that influence these solutions. Your communication skills will also be developed, giving you the confidence you need to interact with clients and fellow industry professionals.


Graduates can work in the private, public and voluntary sector: including:

•private practice real estate consultancies

•commercial and residential surveying firms

•property companies

•financial institutions

•local and central government

•commercial clients
