This is a highly-regarded course which equips graduates for a rewarding and challenging career in the management of land, property, and business in the countryside.
If you are looking to fast-track your way to a career as a Chartered Surveyor, look no further. This course, developed in partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is highly regarded by the industry where our graduates go on to secure roles with national, regional and international firms, as well as for private and public property owners.
The standard entry requirement is the minimum of an Honours degree at a 2:1 classification or equivalent. Students with lower academic achievements with relevant experience (such as farming, property or countryside management) may be considered for admission.
Applicants are encouraged to attend an Open Day prior to applying for this course.
I decided to pursue a career in land management and the MSc in Rural Estate Management at the RAU was the obvious step to achieving this. Although it is a challenging year, the RAU prepares people well for their two year APC training to qualify as a Chartered Surveyor, and offers an invaluable opportunity to network. After graduating, I worked for Smiths Gore in Cirencester, before moving to Cambridgeshire to work at the Burghley Estate. I have no doubt these opportunities are a result of the skills, knowledge, and network that the RAU equipped me with.
