Careers REP PG Rural

Students taking this degree programme regularly find employment as trainee chartered surveyors with firms having a rural specialism or undertaking substantive rural work. Real Estate & Planning has long-standing and well-established links with a number of such firms through its existing undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. A number of the larger firms actively recruit from the University on a regular basis.

Our alumni association, The Reading Real Estate Foundation, organise career development and recruitment events for our students throughout the year. These include an evening lectures series with key industry speakers, an annual Careers Fair and our highly successful Mentoring Programme which pairs students with professionals in the industry.

We have a professional Careers Development Advisor, Jane Batchelor, who helps our students with every aspect of the career development process, including identifying work placement, internships and permanent career opportunities.

It is anticipated that some graduates will use this higher degree pathway as an entry qualification into the wider professional business management sector.
