Student Profile

James Cannon

“The career I am in at the moment won’t last forever. I wanted something challenging and different to get my teeth into, and I had an opportunity to do a bit of work experience in the real estate industry.

I enjoyed it so I spoke to people who had careers in the industry and they suggested I look at UCEM to do a course there.

It’s been great. It has fitted around my work commitments and lifestyle very well.

When I first started studying at UCEM, I was playing for Wasps and then part-way through the season, moved to Connacht.

If I was at a traditional institution, there would have been no way I would have been able to continue with my studies. The flexibility you get with UCEM has been invaluable.

The MSc Real Estate programme gives me the opportunity to experience what a surveyor does in their day-to-day role. I’m learning more about the sector.

When I first started the course, one of the big draws was that it was RICS-accredited. It’s only a good thing if you are doing a course like this. We want it to be accredited by potential employers.

The Tutors have been very, very good. If I have any questions, they have been very promptly answered. They are very helpful. They have helped me a lot, particularly not having a real estate background to fall back on, the tutors’ help has been invaluable.”
