Six careers you can do with a degree in Real Estate

If you’re looking to study a degree in Real Estate you might be interested to know what you could do as a job after your course. Real Estate is an exciting career that offers a range of different highly paid careers in managing, selling and valuing real estate alongside advising on market conditions and property feasibility studies.

We have great industry links and a dedicated Careers+ team to help you find the perfect work placement and develop your employability skills. As a result of this, 100% of our Real Estate graduates were in employment or further study (DLHE 2016/17).

Here are some examples of the type of role you could be in after you graduate:

Property Valuer

A Property Valuer reports to clients on the market value of property or land. You would visit properties to conduct inspections, taking into account factors such as location, building occupiers and the property’s condition. You might be working with a Real Estate Agent, providing information about homes for sale, or working with big corporations to help plan investments.

Property Asset Manager

A Property Asset Manager oversees assets owned and leased by clients. You would be managing the maintenance and development of a physical building, and liaising with occupiers to respond to their demands. You would look after the legal aspects of the property such as health and safety compliance, as well as working to increase the profitability of the space for your client.

Property Developer

As a Property Developer you would work on development projects from finding a suitable location for development and managing the purchase and finances of the development, to supervising the build, to the final marketing and sale of the property. This is a rewarding career if you enjoy working on projects from start to end, and being able to look back at your work and its outcomes.

Property Researcher

If you’re interested in the economics of property and real estate, this could be the career for you. A Property Research Analyst is responsible for conducting macroeconomic, capital market and property market research. You might be commissioned by a real estate stakeholder to analyse and present information and data, to help with forecasting and business development.

Real Estate Agent

This is a great career if you love working in a customer-facing environment. As a Real Estate Agent you would advise your clients about market conditions, conduct inspections, and provide guidance and assistance through the process of buying, selling or renting properties.

Property Financier

A Property Finance Manager provides advice and services to clients on financial matters such as funding and debt management. You might be working with a Property Developer to help them plan the finances of their project, or assisting a real estate stakeholder with forecasting and planning.
