Pathways to Property is a new initiative to widen access to the property profession and Real Estate & Planning courses at the University of Reading.
The programme is targeted at academically-able Year 12 students from non-traditional backgrounds and is supported by British Land, The Sutton Trust and a number of leading real estate firms.
Pathways to Property programme for UK state schools and colleges:

Students will work with staff and students from the School of Real Estate & Planning at the University of Reading, one of the leading institutions in the world for teaching and research in real estate and planning. Students will explore current themes in property such as sustainability, housing issues and regenerating cities, and discover how A Level subjects such as Geography, Economics and Business Studies link to related undergraduate degrees and professional qualifications.
