As a graduate you will be in possession of an MSc degree recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). You can develop your career as a chartered town planner, chartered surveyor, or both.
Opportunities exist in planning consultancies, property developers, real estate agencies and consultancies, housebuilders, local authorities, regeneration and development agencies and the civil service.
If you are interested in helping to shape the future of towns, cities and regions, then this programme will provide you with an excellent base on which to build a fascinating and rewarding career.
We introduce you to key drivers of urban change, including real estate markets and governance processes. We set Scottish experience in an international context, challenging you to reconcile the social, economic and environment aspects of sustainable urban development. We offer a practically orientated programme with professional accreditation, bringing you in direct contact with developers, investors, consultants, planners and other key actors.
You will take a series of core courses and undertake a dissertation or a major project in real planning and real estate development.
Core courses provide you with a grounding in core knowledge and skills required of planners and surveyors working within the planning and development field. Subjects covered include planning and real estate development processes, real estate economics, valuation and development appraisal, spatial planning strategies.
Courses are assessed by a mix of continuous methods to enable you to develop a suitable balance of planning and real estate development competencies. They will involve you attending lectures, seminars and tutorials and taking part in project, IT lab, field and team work.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
