The MSc in Real Estate Management has established itself as a premier postgraduate programme for students wishing to enter the real estate profession. The course was set up in 2002 in response to strong demand from the real estate profession for high-calibre postgraduate students from varying backgrounds. The MSc Real Estate, whilst grounded in academic excellence, is a practice based course for students wishing to work in the real estate industry. This is a non-cognate conversion course that is accredited by the RICS. It will prepare you for the challenges of entering professional practice and completing the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) to become a Chartered Surveyor. The Real Estate courses at Brookes are sponsored by four of the major international real estate consultancies, who provide support to the programme with external speakers, field trips and management support. These are Cluttons, DTZ, King Sturge and Knight Frank. The philosophy of the degree is to provide the student with a theoretical framework in the early modules of the programme and to develop on this in the latter stages with practical, real life examples and case studies.
