About Rural Estate Management
Masters degrees in Rural Estate Management equip postgraduates with the necessary skills to manage large, countryside properties and associated businesses in heritage and agriculture. They offer training in areas such as farm diversification and woodland maintenance, as well as opportunities to work in tourism and leisure.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Agriculture, Geography, or Environmental Studies.
Many of these courses prepare graduates for professional careers such as in chartered surveying, though various other tasks and roles are also explored. You will not only learn to manage the day-to-day upkeep of large residences, but will explore legal issues such as tax, compensation, and the letting of land.
Rural planning, property development, business and commercial management are also components of degrees in this area, meaning you will be well equipped to operate a diverse selection of estates and properties.
Other careers can include planning and environmental consultancy, leisure management, rural surveying and valuation, and positions in county councils and utility companies.
A Masters in Rural Management is also excellent preparation for a PhD.
