The Real Estate Masters Programme is a Master of Studies (MSt) course offered by The Department of Land Economy drawing on the multi-disciplinary strength of the Department and the University. It is aimed at experienced professionals and those identified as future leaders in the real estate industry and combines academic rigour with significant industry input. The course aims to equip participants with a broader knowledge of all aspects of the real estate industry, insight into a range of long-term themes and strategic issues in the market as well as developing a range of research and other skills.



Expected academic standard

Applicants should normally have a relevant UK first or good upper second class honours degree or overseas equivalent. In addition, students joining the MSt course will typically have experience* expected to be of a minimum of three years and, in some cases, a professional qualification in the discipline. They are therefore deemed to have achieved an acceptable level of knowledge and skills in order to meet entry requirements for the course.

Those applicants who do not meet the standard entry criteria, but have alternative qualifications or experience and have the potential to bring valuable assets to the programme, will be evaluated on an individual basis and may be required to provide further materials in support of their application. As applicants are expected to have experience and successful track records in industry, consideration may be given to candidates on the strength of their vocational experience, in lieu of the normal standard entry requirements.

* At least three years of professional experience in a relevant industry: in finance, investment, real estate and the more general built-environment professions.

Language requirement

  • IELTS Academic: Overall score of 7.5 (a minimum of 7.0 in each individual component)
  • TOEFL Internet: Overall score of 110 (a minimum of 25 in each individual component)
  • CAE: Grade A or B (with at least 193 in each individual element) plus a Language Centre assessment
  • CPE: Grade A, B, or C (with at least 200 in each individual element)

Application notes

Those applicants who are subject to a language requirement are strongly encouraged to submit their language results with their initial application as failure to do so may delay the processing of applications.

Potential applicants are also advised to consider carefully their capacity for balancing personal and professional commitments before submitting an application.

Selection process

Applications are considered in batches, on a rolling basis. However, most final decisions are not made until after the application close date.

We advise that applications are made as early as possible.
