The aim of the programme is to enable students to understand the workings of, and techniques used in, real estate markets. Graduates will gain the key skills required for a wide range of careers in the global real estate sector.
The MSc Real Estate programme is a blend of academic rigour and applied practical analysis, with a particular emphasis on global relevance. The programme is designed to be industry facing, incorporating ‘real world’ case studies, field trips and a one-week industry challenge. It is especially suitable for those graduates with a degree in a subject unrelated to property, who wish to develop the key skills and knowledge for a career in the real estate sector.

"The MSc Real Estate course at Reading provided me with an excellent grounding in the technical knowledge needed to embark on a career in surveying, a brilliant network of people working within the industry and was great fun too. I made some really great friends while I was there and I am convinced that being at Reading was a key factor in securing my place on the CBRE graduate scheme."
"I really enjoyed my time at Reading and felt privileged to be part of a course held in the highest regard by the property industry. The core modules gave me a wide range of essential real estate knowledge and the finance and investment options gave me the opportunity to narrow my focus and go on to pursue a career as an investment analyst."
"The MSc in Real Estate at the University of Reading was the obvious choice for me due to the unprecedented reputation of the department and its staff within the real estate network. The ability and drive to keep the course current and the exposure to the big players from Day one of the course definitely contributes to that. When I arrived in industry I felt well prepared from an academic perspective, but equally from a business perspective. I would, and do, recommend the MSc in Real Estate as the number one course for anyone wanting to pursue a career in Real Estate."
"The MSc at Reading has enabled me to gain the understanding and acumen necessary to be propelled into the Real Estate industry. Moreover, many of the people I met upon the course were like minded and will remain close friends for the rest of my life."
Applicants for our full time Real Estate programmes are generally expected to have obtained an upper second class honours degree or equivalent. The academic requirement for mature students may be relaxed in light of relevant professional experience. Applicants whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of proficiency.
