This exciting full and part-time programme provides an opportunity for non-property graduates to become educated for a range of careers in real estate and related industries in Ireland and abroad.



The need for competitiveness and efficiency in both the private and public sectors has resulted in a growing awareness of the role of real estate as an economic and business resource. This, together with an increased emphasis on urban economics policy and major infrastructural development, has created an enhanced demand for those with professional qualifications in real estate and training in the methods and techniques of real estate appraisal.

The programme is presented within the School of Real Estate and Construction Economics in the Faculty of the Built Environment in DIT. The total intake of students each year will be approx. 20-25 students from different disciplines and backgrounds.

The content of the programme, delivered over 2 ½ years (Part-Time)/ 1 year (Full-Time) (5 Semesters) includes subjects pertinent to the practice of Valuation Surveyors and real estate professionals. The programmeís focus is strongly oriented to real estate valuation, appraisal and investment. See Course Content for further details.
