Summary

If you are looking to fast-track your way to a career as a Chartered Surveyor, look no further. This course, developed in partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), is highly regarded by the industry where our graduates go on to secure roles with national, regional and international firms, as well as in private and public property.

As well as acting as a springboard to your qualification as a Chartered Surveyor, this course can also prepare you to become a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers.

Covering rural property law, policy, taxation, financial planning, implementation and environmental challenges, you will be trained in all aspects of land, property and business management.

This course is aimed at those people who are wanting to qualify as a Chartered Surveyor specialising in the management of rural land and property. As well as agricultural land and woodland, farms and rural estates will often include other types of property; for example, residential dwellings and non-agricultural buildings let to other businesses in addition to water or wilderness. They often, therefore, support a diverse range of rural businesses and enterprises including farming, food production, tourism and energy generation. In addition the way in which rural land and property is managed also plays a vital role in the health of the natural environment in rural areas, and also in the life of the communities within it. Land and rural property managers are therefore required to provide a wide range of advice to not only estate owners, but also farmers, tenants and rural business owners. This leads to a varied and interesting career.

To help prepare you for such a career this course covers a diverse range of subject areas including rural property law, farm and rural estate business management, and the management of the natural environment. Furthermore, due to our partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), most of the graduates from this course will go on to complete the RICS 'Assessment of Professional Competence' to qualify as a Chartered Surveyor. In addition, the course can also prepare you to become a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers.

The course may be studied full-time over 12 months, or part-time over a longer period. You will study eight modules and complete a Research Project, which is carried out over the summer and submitted in September.
