MSc Real Estate
Course Director Alex Moss
MSc in Real Estate offers a choice of pathways, which you choose between in the second term. One option adds more UK-specific skills in law, valuation and taxation for those who want to join the graduate-entry programmes of chartered surveying firms. The second focuses more on financial analysis and international markets for those looking to work in investment, finance, development or outside the UK.
MSc in Real Estate Investment
Course Director Sotiris Tsolacos
The MSc in Real Estate Investment course requires a stronger background or aptitude in quantitative methods - from mathematics at final year high-school level, a degree with a quantitative element, or work experience. The course covers the same core “real estate professional” skills as the MSc Real Estate, but extends it to advanced methods in financial modelling, industry research and portfolio analysis, and covers in more detail the financial markets created by Real Estate Investment Trusts and Mortgage Backed Securities.
Graduates from this course may enter the same businesses as those from the MSc Real Estate, but will but will be better qualified for “real estate analyst” roles in investment strategy, financing and research.
