If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as detailed on our website.  Applicants for this programme should have a minimum IELTS (Academic Version) English Proficiency of 6 overall (or equivalent) with nothing less than 6 in each component.

This programme is suitable for those wishing to prepare for a career as an estate agent, property manager or property valuer. You will gain an understanding of the legal, economic and physical framework within which the property market functions. 

Estate agents and auctioneers are involved in the sale, letting, management and valuation of residential and commercial buildings. The programme will provide you with the academic knowledge and vocational skills you need to function effectively in the built environment workplace.

The modules cover selling, leasing, valuing and managing property. The programme will also develop the analytical skills you need to understand financial areas that affect the job of an estate agent, property valuer and property manager.

To provide property services in the areas of sales, letting or property management, it is a legal requirement to obtain a licence from the Property Services Regulatory Authority (PSRA). Graduates of this programme are eligible to apply for this licence.

If you successfully complete Year 2 (having gained 120 ECTS credits), you may exit with a graded Certificate in Auctioneering, Valuation and Estate Agency. This allows you to apply for a licence from the PSRA.
