Emily Ball

The main reason I enjoyed the course was due to the diversity of the course- academically AND practically; giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in a wide range of planning and development themes. The course included a wealth of modules including property economics, planning law, issues in housing, valuation and ethics in planning and development- all knowledge and skills which can be applied in future employment. Most importantly, the course allowed the opportunity for me to follow the strands of planning and development I was most interested in- and for this reason, the most rewarding part of my course was my dissertation. This gave me the opportunity to be creative and have the freedom to challenge gaps in research that needed to be explored. It was reassuring that the department staff were always helpful and supportive and encouraged new avenues of research enquiry that arose through the duration of the course and reaffirmed my passion for research into housing and regeneration.

To begin with, I was fascinated by the structure of the MSc program. The MSc. Real Estate Planning and Development at the University of Sheffield was designed to provide a thorough understanding of the real estate industry, including concepts related to planning, valuation, investments, and development. Additionally, the program focuses on providing an opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in the operational aspects of land and real estate use and development. Furthermore, the program aids students to gain practical experience through site visits, case studies, and simulation-based assessments. The program also provides accreditation by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which I considered an opportunity to get a chartered status through the planning and development pathway after my graduation. In addition, The University of Sheffield’s student-friendly environment, with its campus located across the city centre, pulled me in. Besides that, the student union is remarkable for ensuring the best possible student experience for overseas students. Another aspect that drew my interest was its global reputation, as attending a world-class university was one of my greatest desires. In fact, it is among the top 100 universities in the world, recognized original Redbrick University, and a member of the prestigious Russell Group. It is significant to acknowledge that the university offers high-quality education and support, which I hope will help me excel in my area of study. I have always wanted to study in an environment to widen my outlook and reform cross-cultural understanding, as well as develop valuable life skills such as adaptability and self-reliance.
