    I'm posting this enquiry made on the BSc Real Estate thread, and hope that some of our current MSc students will respond in the coming days/weeks.


    (Original post by imrt92)

    MSc Real Estate Asset Management at Manchester or MSc Real Estate at Reading?

    Tuition fees are vastly different, £8750 at Manchester and £16,500 at Reading respectively.

    Are there any current MSc students at Reading who are able to provide some insight to their real estate course?

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    I am currently on the MSc Real Estate course at Reading. The course is very well organised, with a large variety of modules to choose from. Not only is there the academic element but we also focus on the more practical side of surveying. With a large cohort it also means that you are exposed to many people that you may be working with as colleagues in the future which is fantastic.

    The main reason why I chose Reading is not only for its top rated reputation but for its employability prospects. It is extremely competitive getting a job at one of the top real estate companies but Reading have a dedicated careers advisor to help you with any interview prep or help you may need. In the first couple of months we were also visiting London on a weekly basis to meet with potential employees which was great exposure.

    I hope this helps. I'm afraid I do not know very much about the Manchester course to comment.

    Hi everyone,

    I received an offer yesterday to study the MSc Real Estate at Reading. I live in Trowbridge (Wiltshire), which is just under 2 hours away from Reading. I have read that the Msc Real Estate is taught at Henley Business School and at Whiteknights Campus - do you know which one is right? - as this will make a huge difference to my journey time. Also can you give me an idea of the amount of hours per week you are actually in university? When I was studying at Cardiff it was only 10 contact hours per week, but when I spoke to someone from Reading they informed it is a lot more intense than this.

    Thank you

    Hi Lauren, glad you're joining us! In response to your questions, the teaching is all delivered at Whiteknights (Reading), which should make your life easier. The contact hours per week will vary a little depending on which option modules you take, but the overall number of teaching contact hours is likely to around 10-12 per week. The level of coursework load and time spent on 'related activities' (e.g. careers, industry visits, evening seminars) might well make it feel more intense than Cardiff....but everyone seems to survive!
