Your programme of study

This is a conversion programme for students from any recognised degree to convert into real estate and it is the only professionally accredited postgraduate degree of its type in Scotland. Finance and Real Estate are two very employable professions in their own right but if you combine the two disciplines it opens up a wealth of different options from where you can start your career, where it can go to and where you can live. This programme is international in its relevance with options to study specific modules overseas. The Centre for Real Estate Research is a long established and well respected centre which provides well utilised statistics to markets within real estates environments.

If you want real value in terms of postgraduate degree options you gain knowledge in two different but very much aligned disciplines globally at University of Aberdeen. You gain knowledge and practical aspects to commercial property development, valuation and investment, respected by the Investment Property Forum and you can choose to study in Asia to develop case studies rather than take the traditional dissertation for your masters degree at and additional cost.

The programme brings together these two complementary disciplines offer the student both RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) accreditation and professional finance qualification and comes with a choice in taking CFA 1. The university has market-leading financial databases (the Thomson-Reuters Eikon suite) to support both the teaching and the individual study of students.  Employment options can include working for real estate companies nationally and internationally, start your own business or working freelance within consulting.
